Well I chose to ignore the port 68 deal and took that port watch out of
the mix. I turned my snort on as well and it doesn't see the scanning
going on. I also added that host to the deny list for IPchains but the
host has been in there all along after the first detect. Oddly my logs
did not show any kernel deny's from that host as is the case from other
@home scanners. Generally I get a kernel packet deny log before I see a
portcentry attack alert and the attack alerts were all I'd get, no snort
log and no packet deny.
BTW I use a hosts deny ALL policy in place.

> They're still scanning. You just need something that picks it up before ipchains denies/rejects it. If you're blocking that port then you've complied because you sure as hell aren't running a nntp server (on that port anyway).
