Nope thats the pid of inetd listening to the port. It appears you are
set up to receive mail on your machine directly. Does cat
/var/log/daemon |grep refuse show anything usefull about exim refusing
requests to connect?
For instance my machine loves people from france trying to get to my ftp
daemon, I get like 20 of these a week, 70-80% from france.

As an aside, people blindly searching for things like this annoy me so I
set my tcpd to modify my ipchains rules to immediately deny all incoming
packets from anyone foolish enough to scan. This is in addition to a
good set of ipchains rules.
A line in hosts.deny like follows will block people like this
ALL: ALL: spawn (/sbin/ipchains -I input -y -s %a -j DENY -l -p tcp)
Just be SURE to modify your hosts.allow rules for your hosts and
services. That and check your firewall rules now and again to clean
