When you reference port 53 you do not reference what protocol is handling 
the request.  It would be interesting for you to post this fact in order 
for some list member to provide a valid answer.

As to port 8 (Ait), this is an ICMP Ping port.

I am sure that this is a silly question, but who are these guys that keep
trying my firewall on port 53 (DNS) and port 8. I am sure they must be the
good guys, but why do they keep knocking, I only have one DNS server that is
setup for lookup mode ???
