Who is looking at port 8311??

Just this afternoon, I was observing my firewall logs and noticed something strange and a little troubling.

From a period starting at approximately 3AM CST Wednesday morning (February 3, 2010) until around 10:40 AM, my firewall logged *dozens* of hits attempted against Port 8311 from various IP addresses, but so far as I could tell *all* of those hosts originated from Russia!??

Anyone else see this in in their logs?? Who in the world is so interested in Port 8311, and who, particularly, from Russia?
