I know for one IRC servers will attempt to connect to the IDENT port on a
client while they log in. Are you sharing an IP with your roomate? How many
ports are the servers attempting to connect to?

seeing all sorts of weird activity from IRC servers portscanning my
computer.   He has explained to me that this is normal behavior, as some IRC
servers won't allow connexions from hosts with particular ports active.

$DNSSERVERS in snort-lib, and as well, is this such a good idea,
consdidering they *are* IRC servers after all.
