I just installed ZA a few minutes ago and my ISP is trying to access my ports. About every *5 minutes. WHy would an ISP try to access my ports?

I just installed ZAarm 2 days ago myself and its not my ISP but the people that actually own the DSL lines that are scanning my ports every time I change sites. (ports *27* - 4*** and then over again). My ISP told me that they would have no reason to do this. The company that owns the lines gave me the run around but did actually admit that the address scanning me was internal to thier company and he didnt know why. I am going to send him a copy of my ZALog and hope he is an honest guy that can help.

I personally am beginning to think that the Internet is a way for someone with a little ********* knowledge to run free and spy on people whenever and wherever they want and theres nothing you can do unless you get as smart as them and do what we are doing! If you learn anything please post. Surf safe!!!
