Garrett,

	The Firewall State table tracks all connections...  But, things only
stay in the state table until the connection either times-out, or until the
connection closes.  I think HTTP doesn't completely close out and since DNS
is UDP based, it doesn't either.  (HTTP servers may send a RST instead of
FIN - not sure on the exact reason these show up so much more frequently)

	The specific ones you are looking for are probably very short-lived
connections that close down completely...  If you can catch one in action,
you'll see it there.  You may have to refresh the page quickly looking for
them, though.

Paul

Noticed that the 'Firewall states' page never seems to track entries
realated to mail (local_IP | dynamic_port | global_IP | 110 | tcp) like it
does with HTTP and DNS.  Why is that?
