so do you work for Salsoft, or are you trying to break into a machine owned by them?  

If it's a network you monitor, meaning you have direct responsibility for, wouldn't you already know if it's a honeypot?  

  sounds fishy that you have to ask....

So...one of the networks I monitor has this ip:

66.139.73.183

Doing netbios scans on it. A cursory inspection shows it as a win2003 box...that's WIDE open. Could this be a honeypot that's been compromised?

Curious
