    I've been having issues with DNS servers not responding.

    I schecked the Internet rules (ok, all UDP 53 allowed) and the Log (no blogs for DNS requests).

    However, the Console / Driver Logs reads:

    ook 'n' Stop Version 2.07

    Driver versions: 5.05 & 4.06
    API Driver versions: 6.01 & 5.01
    [9:05:11] Internet Firewall Enabled
    [9:05:11] Appli Firewall Enabled
    [9:05:11] Security Center registration Ok.
    [9:05:11] Computer connected to Internet on: 10.0.0.1.
    [9:06:00] 1 message Uplink
    [9:06:00] 1 message Uplink
    [9:06:00] 1 message Uplink
    [9:07:53] 1 message Downlink
    [9:07:53] 1 message Downlink
    [9:07:53] 1 message Downlink
    ...

    There are lots of these messages (dozens and dozens).

    What do they mean and could it mean that I'm having an issue on my system that needs to be resolved?

    No.

    If you check the times of the messages they will correspond to log entries made.
    So for example, if you see a console entry of:- "[9:07:53] 1 message Downlink", then look in your firewall log, you will find a log entry for 9:07:53 where an inbound packet as been logged.
