Constant download

I am running a ftp and web server with win2K pro. I have noticed that my upload is always pegged to full bandwidth, even if i stop the web AND ftp servers.
Do I have someone connected to me hacking or something?
I have restarted, and it starts again immediately, disable the nic, re enable, start again immediately.
What is going on?

Maybe you are hacked and somebody installed some automated process witch uses your bandwidth (spam mailer, worm, someting else unwanted service)

Check your network connections and listening port

          netstat -a

I would strongly recommend using a good firewall like Zonealarm and check to see which program or process is trying to connect to internet..

ok, installed zone alarm. Works good as far as I can tell. Can't access the servers shared folders through the network now though. Am trying to figure out how to config ZA to allow that.

Can you ping the machine where the folders are there..

Check this discussion

Atleast for windows 98 , MS itself says with zonealarm ON , shared folders cannot be accessed

Cannot Access Share or Files When ZoneAlarm Is Installed

Check for incoming ports in ZA to see if there is anything getting blocked

Also check this
open Zonealarm
click on firewall in the left
click on Main (tab)
click on "custom" under "Internet zone security"
check to allow incoming ports

Download Sygate Personal Firewall.... It will allow you to 'block' any <application> related session as well as design what IPs are allowed and what are not allowed (in case you are running your PC and you WANT to share connection with others)...

I am going to try Sygate since ZA does not seem to allow much customization for internal IP's. Thanks for the answers.
