The FAQ has most of your answers,

:    Also, on my machine behind NAT and SPI hardware firewall I am also running Zone Alarm. ZA's logs show a high rate of blocked intrusion attempts, I am currently tracking down some using Whois,, I guess that is just part of the game running a server,,,Comments welcome,, :)

This is a partial answer,
https://wiki.torproject.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/TorFAQ#Portscans.  In
general, ZA is probably just detecting traffic on various ports and
considers it an attack.  I don't think ZA assumes you're running a
server, and therefore it won't know how to handle connections not
originating locally.

Thanks for donating the bandwidth and running a server!
