    Hi,

    I just installed the latest version of Look 'n' Stop.

    My OS is XP SP3.

    Everytime when I install Look 'n' stop i hear a windows sound dingdingdingdingding like 6x times coming back every 5 seconds.

    Is this a virus what can i do about it?

    I already restored an image with Acronis so it was gone but after reinstalling Look 'n' stop i'm trapped again :p.

    Just Checked the Log it shows 6x Internet --> PC

    I have added the following
    This rule allows others computers to connect
    to your PC, using the UDP port 1900.

    Hi,

    A sound is played when something is written into the log.
    There is an option to disable this sound.

    However, the sound is there because something was blocked and it could require your attention.

    Port 1900 is for UPnP protocol. If you need this protocol the rule you added is correct. Otherwise you should block the packets (without logging them, to avoid the sound).

    Regards,

    Frederic

    Thanks for your answer :).

    I'm not very into networking, but I can find my way opening ports on a router.

    Is this firewall too hard for me to learn? I'm willing to learn so that is not the problem, but my computer knowledge is very average.

    In the screenshot you see some IP's that is from the range of the other pc's in the network. Do I need to create a rule for every pc in the network?

    In my first post i write about port 1900 was coming 6x times in a row in the log. How can I see what that actually is?

    Thx for all ur help

    No, you can create one rule for the specific port and for all IP address (or an IP range).
    This is for Universal Plug 'n' Play (UPnP), if some applications require this protocol, you need to allow the packets (like you did). Otherwise you can block them.
    You can start to block them, and see what will happen. It's easy to change a rule from blocking to allowing.

    Regards,
