I am sure that this is a silly question, but who are these guys that keep

setup for lookup mode ???

I'm not certain about your DNS issues, but with the 'port 8' thing check
which protocol is generating that trigger. It's very likely that it's ICMP
type 8 which is an ICMP echo...a ping. I don't know what firewall you're
using but check it out, it could just be someone pinging your address. :)
