The firewall (Sonicwall TZ170) is logging the following
Possible port scan dropped 222.187.221.126, 12200, WAN xx.xx.xx.xx, 8081, WAN TCP scanned port list, 8080, 80, 1080, 8800, 8118
or Probable port scan dropped 4.71.104.187, 80, WAN xx.xx.xx.xx, 49809, WAN TCP scanned port list, 49507, 49507, 49509, 49509, 49531, 49531, 49557, 49557, 49643, 49643

Note: I replaced our wan ip with XX.xx.xx.xx and attached the scrren shots for your review.
In addition I am using non standard login name and strong password and add my IP to be able to connect from remote location to the firewall only. anything else I should be concerned?

Seems like some bot is scanning for the open ports on your network.It usually happens on the internet
as there are several machines daily getting infected and being the victim of hosting other programs.I usually see my linux machines log file filled with the several attempts.I believe if you keep your servers
patched and upto date in virus definitions and having a vigilant eye on your network and having enterprise level firewalls properly configured there is very less chance of being attacked.But no one can guarantee that you are 100% percent protected.
