    Hi and thanks for having me at Wilders. :D

    I have been trying to find an answer to a question with not much luck so far. I hope this is the correct forum to post this.

    I am not really a router log watcher, which is likely a good thing :rolleyes: But went diving into my router logs this afternoon and noticed a huge and ongoing increase in hits on port 1878.

    I understand this is a registered port for drmsmc but am not really sure what drmsmc is if anyone could enlighten me there I would be beholding to you.

    I don't do online gaming or P2P networks so I am really wondering if anyone knows a possible reason for this large increase on 1878.

    just a few recent log entries from tonight if it helps. As you can see there seems to be two IP's responsible for most of the hits, although I have not gone through the 1000's of records with a fine tooth comb.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

    drmsmc. Uses drmsmc service.
    Does this say anything to anyone?

    I have hundreds more hits then generally on 445 in this same time, could that be a coincidence with your 1878 hits or completely unrelated?
