    Okay, I was using mIRC, and it requested a connection by the remoe machine to a TCP port, now the IP# matched the IP# of the IRC server I was on, but what got me was it was something on the port "Health something something" I dont remember exactly (Wish I would have copied it :doubt:)

    Hey ;)

    It's hard to be sure what happened but a couple of things to expect when you establish an IRC connection is the opening of a socket to the servers port (usually TCP 6667) as well as usually a query from the Server to your machine on the IDENT port (tcp113). Many IRC servers require that you respond to their IDENT query before they allow you on so mIRC has an IDENT "daemon" built in.

    I suspect it was the IDENT thing that alarmed you but if you can note more carefully the actual message and or log info of the activity this would help immensely :)
