I would reccomend getting a firewall, I think they will log it. I use KPF but I don't think it logs it but it will ask me if it can let them connect.

You can see if someone is connected through a tool like NETSTAT or TCPVIEW.

But that will only show connections in progress. If you want to see if someone is trying to connect to a closed port, you would need a software firewall of some sort, or Intrusion Detection Software.

CHX-I is a packet filter, I don't know if it has the ability to report on every packet it stops, but that'd be close to what your looking for.

if you get a linksys router with firewall you can set it up to make and send you a log. if the connections are not from your local network then you will be sure if you are being hacked or not. if that is your question.
