    I have noticed 192.168.1.2 appearing as a local address at ports 137,138,139 and 110. It connects to connect to local address 0.0.0.0 using UDP and TCP protocols . I havent seen this before and the connection to port 110 apparently is interfering with my email client since there is an error statement that port 110 is occupied by "another program" which must be the 192.168.1.2 address somehow..

    I havent noticed this before and would appreciate any thoughts or advice about what is going on here.

    Thanks

    Hi Bdiamond, 192.168.1.2 is a private address and is one of a range that a router might to allocate an IP address for your local network, it cannot be accessed from the internet directly.
    So the situation would be as follows. Your router would hold the proper IP address allocated by your ISP aaa.aaa.aa.aa then through Network Address Translation would allocate each pc on your network an IP address such as 192.168.1.1 Router, 193.168.1.2 PC1, 192.168.1.2 PC2 etc.
