    Firewall (NOT what is it)

    hey all this is more of an opinion type of question i would say, but here it is,
    i have been having trouble with a person(s) attempting to hack onto my private network. i believe that it is one persistant person because they continue to target a specific port from different locations, but he is very good at spoofing his IP to the point that it is random and to me untraceable. i already run ZoneAlarm, & BlackICE. but i just want to know is there more that i can do to protect myself. or is there some specific firewall that is very good at stopping port scans or attempts of?

    sorry for not including information,
    the port he is targeting is 1218 which does not make any sense because it is merely a reserved port.

    nobodys trying to hack you, well not really. thats the port that kazaa listens on.
    if you have a dynamic ip you could have assumed the same ip as a a kazaa user how just logged off.
    But since it became know you could go into it with a web browser, thousands of people are scanning their ip block to see whats available.
