Re: what is on port 13223

Just searched on Google for you. http://www.robertgraham.com/pubs/firewall-seen.html is a great site on what is hitting your firewall (what ever port number) by the looks of it. It says the following about port 13223

Hope that helps


13223                  The "PowWow" chat program from Tribal Voice. It allows users to open up private chat connections
                            with each other on this port. The program is very aggressive at trying to establish the connection
                            and will "camp" on the TCP port waiting for a response. This causes a connection attempt at
                            regular intervals like a heartbeat. This can be seen by dial-up users who inherit IP addresses from
                            somebody who was chatting with other people: it will appear as if many different people are
                            probing that port. The protocol uses the letters "OPNG" as the first four bytes of its connection
                            attempt. more
