Re: 'netstat -tu' shows unexpected outbound connection

I found out why.

The outbound IP address belongs to a Windows NT machine for a
shared drive.

My paranoia.

   This connection is there all the time, even after I have
   closed all web browers and network connections I know of.  I
   still can't think of any reason why I am connected to
   172.22.202.*.  My firestarter GUI shows the full IP address
   being, via port 445.  'host' says
   "not found".
   Is this something I should worry about?  I can't seem to get
   rid of it by temporarily stopping services.
   I am running Debian Lenny x86-64, with Samba installed (but
   stopped at the time of running netstat below).
   Many thanks,
   $ netstat -tu
