    Suddenly I get this pop up in OA Premium that System (Protocol:RAW) wants to attend the Internet. What exactly is this System? For svchost or any other program I can see the location and type (e.g. exe), but this is just system with no exe file mentioned. And why does it suddenly want access to Internet. Shall I allow or keep it blocked?

    Thanks

    What operating system are you using?
    Does the request include a destination IP or a port number?

    I'm not familiar with OA, but with Kerio on XP-Pro, system often appears with listening NETBIOS ports.

    Yes, I'll contact them, but I just dont know how to describe what system is (location, program etc)! Is it a .exe or a .dll or something else?


    Win Vista SP2, OA Premium 5.5.0.1557. Once port 445, other times none, no destination IP (not even local host, as I have "intercept loopback adapter" ticked), protocol:RAW

    just describe it to them as presented in your last post. Based on it I suspect some internal benign system process communication.
