    Hi, using the most recent version with windows 7 x64.

    My internet keeps getting blocked because ess is detecting port scans coming from my router. Why would this be ?

    My router is 192.168.1.1 and my PC is 192.168.1.252

    Some routers scan for remote ports. Add its IP address to the list of addresses excluded from active protection in the Zone setup.
