This is where I usually start:
but it doesn't list any information for port 17641. Searching for the
port number on the site doesn't produce anything, and Google didn't give
me anything either. I wouldn't worry about it; if you want to track
down every port scan that hits your firewall you won't have time to do
anything else ...
There is always something dumber, something less evolved, something
just plain out _weirder_ than whatever it is you're looking at.
It is the way of things.
