    Hi, I just set the ESS firewall to Interactive mode. Before it always stayed at automatic. I know i get messages and have to allow or deny, but this one is a bit weird... Can anyone of you guys say i have to do it or not? I can't find where it's from, image here:

    I just leave the message until i get an answer :)

    80.152.233.89 is hansesoft.dyndns.org so I suspect your PC is using a German ISP for dns services?

    Do you have reason to connect there?

    If not block it.

    OK, thx for this, maybe it had to do something with uTorrent i had on... but i don't think so. Thanks for the fast reply's! :)

    EDIT: oh oh oh, I know what it was, a virus! Just scanned my PC and found the first one in my life :p Deleted and my PC is clean again, i think the trojan made those weird connections ;)

    Hi, try ESET SysInspector to see which processes connect to network.

    If you know the application is legitimate and why it’s requesting an outbound connection, allow the connection. Otherwise, block it once. If you notice that you’re being hampered and get the same request you can allow it. If your work is not hampered in any way and you get the same request later, then you can block it always
