As a datacenter Operations Director - I will tell you GO TO YOUR ISP.
There are a ton of ways to do a port scan - HOWEVER chances are doing a port scan will be against your providers TOS and AUP (Terms of Service / Acceptable Use Policy)
We allow Port Scans by users to their own equipment - but routinely will disqualify traffic coming from IP Addresses doing port scans.
Our Control panel allows a user to perform a scan against their own server - as well as schedule various services such as Qualsys, McAfee, BluePay PCI etc... HOWEVER just random traffic will most assuredly for any DataCenter worth its weight in spit - get you into trouble.
We run a number of tools that would automagically kill your traffic.
CALL YOUR DATACENTER / ISP - or open a ticket.
If you are not running anything on your own server AND your ISP does not - it is time to get some security in place as well.
I suggest you check out www.ConfigServer.com for the CSF firewall and/or R-FX networks for APF/BFD as well.
Both are free
