Uh, question: is this windows that you're using? If it is, get a firewall,
or get a better firewall, or configure the firewall that you have, etc. If
it's Linux or a Linux server that's showing that port, and it's using
IPTables, you can try modifying the rules for that port to only allow
access from IP's on your own LAN.
