Hi everyone,

I noticed a large number of connection attempts to port 5666/udp
yesterday and today (roughly 75000 in total; also see [1]). Does
anyone know anything about that port? The only thing I can find on it
is an entry in Kurt Seifried's port database ([2]) pointing to
Netsaint/Nagios; Eclipse [3] also seems to use that port locally, but
there doesn't seem to be anything that would explain the sudden rise
in connection attempts to that port.
