1241 is definitely a nessus port but kazaa typically (.. this can be
changed) resides on 1214

hmmm...well there are a couple of things, off the top of my head, that live
on this port... nessus and kazaa.  It sounds like you are responsible for
firewall administration...why was the port opened in the first place?  have
you talked with your server adminstrator(s) to find out what's running on
the box?
