More Apache Log Errors!

What exactly are these two requests trying to accomplish: - - [26/Feb/2003:15:46:36 -0500] "POST HTTP/1.0" 200 613 "-" "-" - - [26/Feb/2003:15:46:36 -0500] "CONNECT HTTP/1.0" 405 316 "-" "-"

The ip address is not related to my network at all and as for port 6667 I have no idea what that is all about.

6667 is the IRC port, if I remember right. Do you get these a lot? I have a vague idea that someone is trying to 'post' to the IRC server at the 200.x.x.x ip via your httpd. Now, that's just PURE speculation, cuz I dont know how successful these attempts would be if they were real . We'll have to see the whole packet (tcpdump) when this happens to make sure what my guess isn't too far fetched.

Some IRC servers do a sort of port scan on connect. If you look closely at the MOTD when you connect to the server, you might find something similar to this:
--- - Please be aware that OFTC operates an open proxy detection
--- - system( Please disregard
--- - connections from as it
--- - is the detector in action. If you dislike this, please
--- - disconnect now.
Anything on port 6667 will most likely be the IRC proxy scans. Its nothing to be worried about, unless of course, you're not using IRC
