Did you check for proxy config on his netscape?

I've done searches out the ying-yang for any references on the net to this
problem, to no avail... Maybe someone in this list has seen this...
In my firewall logs, I have a machine (mac) on my internal private network that
has occasionally hit my non-existent web server port 80 on the firewall 80-90
times per minute... There is no reference to the firewall in any config on
that machine (that I can find) other than DNS. I spoke with the user and he
said that he used netscape during the day, and he never tried to point to the
firewall in a URL, even if he did, he couldn't manually hit it 80-90 times a
minute. He said that his netscape did crash at sometime around the same time
the logs show, but that's just grasping at straws... Anyone ever see this
type of problem in any of their logs? This isn't the first time I've seen it,
although it is rare, and each time the person has been running netscape.
Go figure... Anything out there?
