I had read something similar to that before. 

My problem is finding which process it is that is listening for 
such traffic. At the moment I have no firewall operating on my 
machine. 

I found the following and wonder whether if it is of any help:

 *Re: raw socket *:6

 *David S. Miller (davem@dm.cobaltmicro.com)

 *raw socket with local address 0:6 appeared
 *in netstat and /proc/net/raw.
 *
 *it's companion, 0:1 has been there for a while.
 *
 *does anyone know its function?

thanks again.
