I see tcpwrapper once in a while as a service, what does it mean?

I'm assuming that's an nmap scan or similar. TCP Wrapper is a client side software solution for Linux/BSD machines which provides firewall features. It monitors all incoming packets to the machine and if an external node attempts to connect, the software checks to see if the node is authorized based on various criteria you can specify.
