I have been on a DSL connection for a few weeks, and my IP address will change
about once a week. Since the most recent IP address change, I have been
seeing in my logs attempted connections to ports 137, 138, and 139 but I am
not concerned because I am guessing that someone was running a server there
before I got the IP address. Once I start seeing attempts from one host/net
to connect to multiple ports, I get concerned and I e-mail their abuse address.
I run portsentry and logcheck together and it works well for me.
