Things are picking up on my Kippo server

I’ve been playing around with MHN and some honeypots this week. I appear to have got Kippo running OK on my home network and just bought a server at (for $17.50 to own it forever, it was a no-brainer) where I will add another node. I just knocked out a snort instance on the Kippo box and will wait to see if it reports. I find it fascinating how quickly things get scanned. If you have any tips or tricks for MHN or honeypots in general, let me know please.
