1 I' m not sure if I need packet analyzer or another tool.
2 I can see network activity on my dsl modem led. Right
3 before I switched to Gentoo, my windows box has
4 died for a couple of days ( it had no firewall).
5 It was bunch of viruses, worms and god knows what
6 else. When I turned firewall, it blocked endless probes.
7 I suspect the same thing hapening now. Aside from
8 I need a firewall ( and I deliberatly do not install one,)
9 how can I track an activities that generate that traffic?
11 Thanks. Boris
