I'm getting literally thousands of attempted connections to port 8080...
obviously this is an attempt to find a proxy server..... but why would the
same IP try the same connection 500 times?  Obviously there is no daemon
running, so they can only get connection refused...

This weekend, I've had over 7000 hits from 110 source IP's....

I'm confused!
