Question Unknown open port: "6881/tcp open bittorrent-tracker" found with nmap

Hi. I ran nmap on my server, and I get the following:

Starting Nmap 4.76 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2009-03-19 16:33 EDT
Interesting ports on -------- (-----):
Not shown: 997 closed ports
22/tcp   open  ssh
80/tcp   open  http
6881/tcp open  bittorrent-tracker

The first two are as I want, but I am not running anything bittorrent related (at least I'm not intending to). What tool can I use to manage my open ports or see what processes are causing this?

I'm running Debian 2.6.18-6 (powerpc)

Thanks for any help!


EDIT: Solved! I was running nmap on the router, not the server itself. Someone using a computer locally was running Bittorrent. Silly me.

       XSetPointerMapping, XGetPointerMapping - manipulate pointer settings

       int XSetPointerMapping(display, map, nmap)
	  Display *display;
	  unsigned char map[];
	  int nmap;

       int XGetPointerMapping(display, map_return, nmap)
	  Display *display;
	  unsigned char map_return[];
	  int nmap;

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       map	 Specifies the mapping list.

		 Returns the mapping list.

       nmap	 Specifies the number of items in the mapping list.

       The function sets the mapping of the pointer.  If it succeeds, the X server generates a event, and returns Element map[i] defines the logi-
       cal button number for the physical button i+1.  The length of the list must be the same as would return, or a error results.  A zero ele-
       ment disables a button, and elements are not restricted in value by the number of physical buttons.  However, no two elements can have the
       same nonzero value, or a error results.	If any of the buttons to be altered are logically in the down state, returns and the mapping is
       not changed.

       can generate a error.

       The function returns the current mapping of the pointer.  Pointer buttons are numbered starting from one.  returns the number of physical
       buttons actually on the pointer.  The nominal mapping for a pointer is map[i]=i+1.  The nmap argument specifies the length of the array
       where the pointer mapping is returned, and only the first nmap elements are returned in map_return.

       Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
		 Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by the argument's type is accepted. Any argument
		 defined as a set of alternatives can generate this error.
