It's possible that RH installed a deamon like 'tcplogd' and 'icmplogd'
by default or you just enabled that option. These deamons show incomming
connection attempts and icmp requests. 

Both these programs are in the 'iplogger' package.

They do not show refused connections, this, as someone else on this
thread suggested, can be found in the /var/log/auth.log file, or, if you
install a firewall that supports logging events like iptables, you can
have extensive information of incomming events and refused events on
your connection...
