Thank you for replying. These entries in my logs were from last night. I don't
think I had my browser open (which does update news pretty frequently). The
preprocessor statements I have are,

preprocessor http_decode: 80 8080
preprocessor minfrag: 128

How can I find out from the "spp_portscan" log message, which ports are

Thank you once again.
