    I recently switched from a cable connection to adsl.
    Sometimes the (adsl) modem shows up in the log:
    Address\Application: Speedtouch

    What is that about? Should it be allowed and if yes, how? For a particular program?

    Could you post the complete line of the log.
    What do you get in the columns called "rule" and "Additional"??

    Thomas :)

    This is it.

    D-9 'UDP : Any other UDP pack' 10.0.0.138 UDP Ports Dest:1900 Src:2553

    Hmmm, I don't know....

    10.0.0.138 could be your local IP address
    I have an allow rule for UDP traffic (port 1900) to my router (do you have a router?)

    So what is missing here is the destination IP (could be your router? Maybe you did not post it, is it somewhere in your logs?)

    But what confuses me is the application name "Speedtouch"... Maybe someone else can help...

    Maybe "Speedtouch" is the destination address. Does it show any IP toghether with "Speedtouch" o_O

    10.0.0.138 is what it says in the log (txt) file in the program folder of LnS.

    In the LnS program window it says Speedtouch.lan instead of 10.0.0.138.

    10.0.0.138 should be the address for the modem=Speedtouch.lan.
    (Does that actually have an address?) :)

    The default option is set to only display the name of the IP and not the IP itself. This can be changed in the options, in order to get something like: Speedtouch.lan=10.0.0.138

    Yes if your modem is a router it has a local address.

    OK, thanks.

    Should this traffic be allowed? If yes, how (client or server and for which programs, if not for all)?

    I'm not sure there is a specific application attached to these packets. It should be the system itself.
    Anyway you need to allow the packets only if you noticed a problem with Internet or your modem/router.
    And if you allow them, you should specify the IP address so the risk will be limited to have a vulnerability here.
