    Hi!

    I have such a question. I was monitoring my firewall logs today on my home network and I see denied requests from IPs coming from China, Turkey, Columbia through the SSH and telnet ports.

    I found it very strange that IPs originating from these countries have anything to do with a home users network.

    Maybe they are scanning IP ranges? Looking for holes in the internet I guess. Not having a firewall before and only protected from a regular router, I am wondering how often these types of attacks happen to all internet home users... Maybe it's part of the internet and how people get hacked, unsecure, networks?

    The firewall is doing what the firewall is supposed to do. This is normal. You only have to worry if you see them actually connecting to a device on your network.
