    Hello,

    Since several months Eset keeps raising an alarm about incoming connections.
    What I cannot understand is why I can refuse them manually without having my Internet connection broken, and why the connection gets broken if I create a rule (the connection will works again as soon as the rule is deleted).

    Those incoming connections always come from the same addresses: ns1.numericable.net and ns2.numericable.net (89.2.0.1 and 89.2.0.2 respectively) from distant port 53. Local port always change.

    Should I always accept those connections or are they attacks to avoid ?

    Thanks !

    Yes it is.
    Note that I have just upgraded to the latest version 4.2.67.10 (I had 4.0.xxxx).
    So far I didn't have any alarm but I'll eventually post should this continue.
    Thanks for your reply.
