Sam is real active for no good reason, i have no idea What is going on, but i think linux server 3,501 may have just joined the bad server Apache_mod_ssl Worm (slapper) party. I'm going off line incase this is true.
I really have no idea what else to do at this point.
If anyone could give me some realy PLAIN advice, or links in responce to this, i would appreciate it. Keep in mind, i am clueless!

As graham said "It only gets those who haven't kept uptodate with the security upgrades."
well thats me folks!

nighty night... i'll reconfigure things, and bypass Sam in the morning

LOOK AT THE LOGS. THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE FOR. (YES I AM SHOUTING!!!!!).:_| X-(

The logs tell you what Sam is doing. You can even, with appropriate options to tail, have a terminal window (or windows ... one for each log file) showing the messages as they are sent to the files.
