    I have configured my iptables and just thought I'd look at the logs to check a few things out. I see these types of entries however:

    Mar  1 20:49:15 xxxxxxxx kernel: [1022778.272100] Dropped outgoing: IN= OUT=eth0 SRC=xx.xx.xx.xx DST= LEN=60 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=19834 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=60381 DPT=53 WINDOW=14600 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0
    What I would like to know is how can I determine what process is calling this? I have run netstat and nothing is bound to this port.

    As a secondary point, the IP address resolves to so I am thinking that this should be allowed?

    You are dropping outgoing connections to port 53 (DPT=53). Port 53 is used for dns.
