Are these just harmless port scans?



[LAN access from remote] from 217.44.174.203:62201 to 192.168.1.88:4895, Wednesday, November 17,2010 12:02:47
[LAN access from remote] from 86.159.94.16:58186 to 192.168.1.88:4895, Wednesday, November 17,2010 12:02:25
[LAN access from remote] from 87.93.113.80:49957 to 192.168.1.88:4895, Wednesday, November 17,2010 12:02:02
[LAN access from remote] from 203.17.42.44:2346 to 192.168.1.88:4895, Wednesday, November 17,2010 12:00:05

4895 is a port I have forwarded/open for uTorrent. When I looked at the logs there was lots of connections to the (Internal network) IP of my laptop. I turned off uTorrent and noticed that I was still getting entries in the log..

I then forwarded the port to 192.168.1.88 - there is no machine on my Lan with that IP addy but I'm getting [LAN access from remote]entries in the Log.

Are these just ppl scanning my open port? or is it something to worry about?

*also on OG...

It can take a while for torrent connections on both side to register your not there anymore, try to leave it closed for a day and check the logs the next morning. The connections should not be there.

I've seen them still try to connect for up to 30 mins after closing.
