    I am running netstat command ( netstat -plan|grep :80|awk {'print $5'}|cut -d: -f 1|sort|uniq -c|sort -nk 1 )

    and realized that the most connections from the same ip is the ip of my own server. 100+ connections.

    I was wondering is this normal, what does this mean. I have done some research but can't find an answer.

    Thank you :)

    I have nginx installed from cpnginx. Would that be it ? But it seems to me weird that I would not see the "real" ip's, no ? Is there a way to see it ? Thanks
