    I regularly receive a warning message about a port scanning attack from 10.1.1.3 which is my D-Link router. Is there any way I can have this particular message stopped or ignored?

    It's not really a problem but I do tend to sit up and take very close notice whenever a "red message" appears but this situation (to my way of thinking) is not a threat to my computer.

    I would appreciate advice on this issue.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Add the router's IP address to the list of addresses excluded from active protection (IDS) in the zone setup.
