    Hello, it`s me again ! :rolleyes:

    I just checked my LnS log earlier this morning and saw this:

    As you can see there were nearly 150 attempts made from the same (or very similar) addresses in 6 minutes.

    I understand that LnS is doing it`s job and blocking unwanted connections, but could someone explain why it might happen like this ?

    I checked the addresses and they all came from the same place, which happens to be part of the same company as my ISP.

    So I`m not particularly concerned that they came from there....but was wondering WHY they would try to connect so often in a short space of time.

    Could they be somehow trying to check up on me, or find out about my connection...or even try to interrupt something ?

    What could they be trying to do ? :doubt:

    Thanks for that link Phant0m, I think I now understand what that message is.

    I do have that software installed (uTorrent) but certainly was not using it this morning when I got those logs....

    all I did was turn on the computer and open ThunderBird & Firefox, nothing else.

    The only other thing that connected at the time when I booted up was the antivirus trying to update itself.

    That`s what made me wonder if it was some kind of "attack" :thumb:

    But is your IP dynamic? You probably was giving an IP that was just used by someone else... ;)

    Hey Fad

    It's me again, too!
    There is absolutely NO PROBLEM with that situation.
    I also have a static IP and what you describe concerning Look'n'Stop logs is quite usual after running a P2P application. It only shows it's doing a fine job.
    Relax!
    Cheers.
    Rui

    Hi Rui...

    thanks for the info, I`m glad to hear it`s not just me :thumb:

    I only worried because I wasn`t actually doing anything at the time when they appeared.

    I just check them every now & again to see what`s going on, but it`s been quite quiet in the logs recently.
