Their contact is ipv6 at
Pretty quick response last time I contacted them.
The port scans are usually the result of the initiator of the tunnel 
activating a simple security scanner. As far as I know it works only on 
an address that is bound to their account.
It shouldn't be repeating itself unless there is some sort of error.
