Why do I see "ttloop: peer died" in SCO Unix syslog?

If you are seeing a lot of these, it may be because someone is scanning your machine looking for open ports. This is an example:


  Jan 24 16:54:30 scobox telnetd[2843]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 16:59:31 scobox telnetd[2844]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:04:36 scobox telnetd[2845]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:09:31 scobox telnetd[2851]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:14:31 scobox telnetd[2860]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:19:32 scobox telnetd[2861]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:24:32 scobox telnetd[2899]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:29:31 scobox telnetd[2902]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:34:32 scobox telnetd[2912]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
  Jan 24 17:39:32 scobox telnetd[2927]: ttloop:  peer died: Unknown error
 

It could also just be a bad line.. look for failing telnets:

#!/bin/sh
  while :; do
    netstat -n -p tcp | fgrep '.23 '  | sed "/ESTABLISHED/d"
    sleep 5
  done
