    I've been using Argus (
    for a few months and have found it very useful for
    detecting activity, especially recon from a single
    source to a single port against my single cable modem

    For example, I've seen activity to ports 2, 57, and
    3410 TCP recently and describe the activity (with
    links to more info) on my 30 Jun 03 blog entry, if
    anyone is interested:

    Is anyone else using Argus? Jed Haile gave a short
    presentation at CanSecWest on using Argus to monitor
    network flows. Russell Fulton has been doing the same
    thing with Argus for at least four years.
