Subject: [Dshield] Transient Netstat Output

I'm seeing entries like this from "netstat -an" on a Windows NT 4.0 Server
machine with IIS 4.0. They come and go. I checked the first foreign IP at
RIPE. It belongs to a service provider in the Netherlands. My system runs at
a public library in Massachusetts.

I ran the 1628x port series through Google and Symantec Security Response
and didn't find anything. Neither my NT event viewer or W3SVC logs show
anything unusual. I'm patched, running URLScan, and up to date on virus

What do these mean?
