    I'm kinda new to this so im not sure which information to supply, but please ask if something is missing.

    I'm using ESS 4.2.71.2 on windows 7. Every few minutes i get these two similar requests(related to OpenDNS) to allow outbound traffic. If i try to click accept, it tells "the rule is too general. are you sure you want to add it?" anyway, here are the two requests, as well as the result: am i at risk? should i block or allow these?

    According to OpenDNS:
    is there a way i can find out what is making the request?

    request one:

    request two:

    result:

    Hello,

    You could download wireshark and let it run until you're prompted that same message again, stop the packet capture, then see what process is trying to reach the IP address (in paranthesis). That will tell you what is trying to reference the openDNS address.

    How is your TCP/IP settings configured. Do you have openDNS addresses statically set there?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    my tcp/ip settings are all set to obtain automatically(i have nothing pertaining to OpenDNS on my computer, that is why im confused), OpenDNS is actually set up on my linksys wrt54g router.

    I will run wireshark, is any set up required or will it be ok to run as soon as it is installed?
