    Hello all!

    Let me start with my setup:

    XP SP2 updated, NOD32 2.7, Outpost (584) and Spysweeper. Usually I never have any problems with games etc. with this setup. But I just added a ZyXEL P-335 Router (NAT+SPI (I'm on a cable modem)) for some extra security.

    Outpost frequently blocks packets from the router. Fx:

    n/a UDP 192.168.1.255 520 192.168.1.1 520 Packet to closed port IN REFUSED 17:25:50 05 sec(s) 0 Bytes 0 Bytes 0 Bps ---

    Is this a "bad" thing? I could check the "trusted" checkbox in Outposts LAN settings, but I don't like that idea.

    Thanks for any help =)

    u can allow them if u wish, but its generally not necessary.

    try checking your router config and see if u can disable RIP.

    I don't think its a bad thing, if you are the only one plugged into the router then ticking or unticking that box doesn't really matter.

    Log into your router and see if it has "UPnP enabled. If so, try disabling it and save the setting. That could be it. i have seen it with my D-Link router.
