    Any idea why PrivateFirewall prevents incoming and outgoing connections from/to Netbios-dgm and Netbios-ns. From what I have read these are a netbios datagram and netbios name service respectively and are not dangerous.
    These are UDP(17) packets.

    Any clarification would be appreciated.
