    I was checking my Network Connections and I kept seeing one of the computers on my network communicating with my PC about every 5 seconds.

    TCP and Microsoft-ds(445) Microsoft-DS is the remote port.

    On the PC communicating with me I have a printer that is being shared over the network as well. Is this activity normal?

    Update: I removed the shared printer from my PC and the activity went away so it looks like it was because it was shared. Doesn't hurt to check though haha
