Firewall Warning (question)
Security Suite's firewall blocked an inbound Generic Host Process for Win32 Services - supposedly from MS Windows Publisher. I was going to allow it, but in checking the Remote Computer IP Address, it seems to be in Japan I'm attaching a view of my window showing the notice and information on the process. I'm really confused and not knowledgeable about this. What might you guys suggest?
Re: Firewall Warning (question)
nothing to worry about. Your PC is synchronizing time. Port 123 is a standard for NTP protocol. This is not Japan, here is what that IP is -
OrgName: Microsoft Corp
Address: One Microsoft Way
NetRange: 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52
NetType: Direct Assignment
You should allow this (if you use 'Windows Time' service), better yet, select 'Advanced options' on that popup, and create a custom rule which allows any remote IP on port 123 as Windows tends to update your PC time via various servers worldwide.
