    I tried to backtrace it, but it said it was a "Invalid IP for backtracing." or something, I have about 3 or 4 of them like that. Just wanna make sure if its safe (It was blocked, but still)

    Hi Comp, this was discussed some at this thread:

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=12832

    If the link doesn't work, go to Other Firewalls section, about midway down. Hope this helps.

    Best Regards, Rick

    Hi Comp01

    The problem you encountered with the backtrace is that the 0.0.0.0 is your own system, and the 255.255.255.255 is just a broadcast address. What you are seeing blocked is just DHCP/Bootp broadcasts likely when your system is renewing it's IP. Nothing to worry about.

    Regards,
