You may be refering to portsentry.

See: http://www.psionic.com/abacus/portsentry

"Runs on TCP and UDP sockets to detect port scans
   against your system. PortSentry is configurable to run on multiple
   sockets at the same time so you only need to start one copy to
   cover dozens of tripwired services."
