    i use a well known p2p file sharing programme and of late my system has been taken down a couple of times by UDP attacks. does anyone have any links or progs for preventing this? (and a prog for doing it as well would be useful!! :D )

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Hi dexter472

    ... and welcome to Wilders :)

    Can you provide some more details on what you experienced? Any Logs?
    A little more about your current set-up would help and are you running a firewall?

    Regards,

    CrazyM

    Thank you CrazyM - the P2p prog is winmx, i'm using sygate pro as my firewall in conjunction with port explorer. re logs - i haven't got any sorry, but basically what happens is the comp is forced off line and i have to reset the dsl connection

    Just how is it you are being forced off line and why do you feel it is a UDP attack?
