Fred, if you type the url of the probing computer into a Whois search engine you should be able to get an idea of who is probing and where they are from. A couple of them are.

Having been through a number of internet service providers while using a firewall I can say that not all providers get probed as often. One was every 5 minutes, with ~ 40% of the requests from Russia. Others aren't as bad.
