    "Someone from, port 2557 wants to connect to port 135 owned by 'Distributed COM Services' on your computer"

    I just installed Kerio 2.1.5 and on dial-up I get this type of messages popping up every minute. IP numbers change every time. Is this normal or someone is really trying to connect to my computer?. The IPs are mainly from my provider's domain.

    Should I block these requests?? I permitted a couple of times and nothing happened.

    Win98 - KAV 4.5

    Before I had Kaspersky Anti Hacker and I did not get any of these messages.

    I appreciate any help. Thanks..

    No, and it would seem that you need something easier to use since rule based firewalls are totally dependent on the user being able to configure them correctly.

    Yes it is normal to see scans like this.

    You should always block any and all unsolicited inbound traffic.

    Do you have a block any inbound rule at the end of your rule set?
    If not, create one, enable logging, no alert.
