Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think someone is scaning my box, here is part f my incoming log, I need a 2nd oppion:
In goes on like that for a page and a half, it seems that they are only scaning 6 ports: alt. http, ssh, 1080, 3030, 6588, and 3228. Why would they only scan 6 ports and not scan for ftp and what is 1080, 3030, 6588, and 3228?
Somebody probably is scanning you. I've got about a half dozen computers on my ISP's network that always look at my computer to see whether or not I'm running an insecure IIS server. I've reported it several times and my ISP (road runner) has yet to pull the plug on them.
So, in short, scanning happens and there's no way around it. Why they haven't scanned for FTP depends on exactly what diabolical deeds they are planning. I would encourage you to traceroute the IPs and send a complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org

I do not know all the ports you list OTMH, but 3128 is Squid proxy, that 3128 scan is looking for a open proxy.
1080 is SOCKS, 3030 lists as Arepa Cas.(dunno either), 3028 is LiebDevMgmt_DM., 6588 is unassigned. Perhaps someone is trying to use your machine as a proxy so they will be untracable to their intended victim. Just a guess. Report the meanines!
