    I am trialling ESS 4.0.68.0 beta but I am experiencing dropped connections every 5 minutes or so. I am using Firefox and Open DNS. This is a copy of my log:

    18/11/2008 19:52:39 Detected DNS cache poisoning attack 192.168.1.1:53 192.168.1.2:61017 UDP

    208.69.34.230:80 appears to be the IP address of Open DNS.
    I am not a firewall techie, so could someone tell me what is happening and how to prevent this.
    Many Thanks

    I have run the firewall in interactive and automatic modes with the same result.
