Here is not a answer but a little suggestion. How about you run
`tcpdump` on internal interface. If there are many traffics, the
cause is other boxes. If not, the cause is your firewall box. You
can divide the problem. If firewall box, how about you try `netstat`
or `lsof` and `grep 1099`. You can find which process open port 1099.

a problem, if you tackle just a piece of it and learn from that, you'll 
learn enough to solve the next piece -- and so on, until you're done.
