Hmmm...a PXF-based router perhaps?  Time to wait for the OP to respond back...

Also, is there any noteworthy traffic between the two stations. It would appear that 61.35.165.124 would be a windows 2000 device.

As for what means, it tells you that a connection has been established between the two devices.
Problematic? It appears to be an informational message.
To prevent it, (I'm assuming you mean the message, not the connection) you could disable the logging of those messages or the logging "level". Depeding on the type of router, you may not be able to do this.

PXF?

Permanent X-Ray Filter?
Primary Xylophone Function?

Sorry. It's early and I've got the day off. :-)

Day off and you're here?  Why?  :)

PXF is Cisco's Parallel eXpress Forwarding technology.  If a packet doesn't require high-touch features, the PXF CPU can handle high-speed packet forwarding (basically a CEF ASIC of sorts).  In the beginning, just about any feature caused the main CPU to have to take over, but they've done a lot more with it over time.  The ESR 10008 is entirely PXF-based, and the 7200 NSE brains are PXF-based.
