    Hi,
    I am using SMC hardware firewall and I have email notification setup in case of any attack from outside network. I am getting email below very often from different IP address on similar type of attack. I know firewall takes care of this type of attack but I need to know how do I prevent such thing happening over and over ?

    Dear User
    Your router has detected and protected you against an attempt to gain access to
    your network. This may have been an attempted hacker intrusion, or perhaps
    just your Internet Service Provider doing routine network maintenance.
    Most of these network probes are nothing to be worried about - these types of
    random probes should NOT be reported, but you may want to report repeated
    intrusions attempts. Save this email for comparison with future alert
    messages.
    Your router Alert Information

    It looks as if it is blocking as it should. There is always traffic trying to connect in. It sounds like your firewall is doing it's job.

    Like bigc said it appears your firewall is working so I wouldn't worry much about it. Port 1027 is used by ICQ IM service.

    Hi mamin

    ... and welcome to Wilders :)

    Unfortunately lengthy firewall logs are part of being on the Internet these days. You could consider submitting your logs to a place like DShield who gather logs from those participating and forward abuse reports based on these totals which is more effective than individual users trying to report.

    Regards,
