    I currently have configured an iptables firewall (-m state) allowing
incoming established connections only and inbound connections to active/intended
ports on designated servers, but my net gets attempted scans several times a
day, and increasing every week.

  Wouldn´t it be easier on the firewall to drop traffic on scanners as soon as
they are detected, than having every packet parsed through every rule on the
firewall box until it reaches the -P DROP ?

 On the other hand, I had not considered Bernd´s advice on the denial of service
possibility opened by blocking incoming port scans of forged IPs; is this DoS a
common practice? 

 What do you guys have experienced?
