Strange entries in firewall log ever since most recent program update

These keep multiplying ever couple of seconds whenever i have block fragmented ip traffic enabled, This started happening after updating to the most recent program update (6.2.282872.2847) Is this a bug or something i should be worried about?

I have something similar going on… I was just going to create a new topic when I found this. For me, it started a week ago (20/06) and it’s repeating every 30 seconds during the entire period when my PC is on. (see attachment)
Other symptoms: I can’t login with the Yahoo Messenger client, but my internet connection is pretty good. Might not be relevant at all though.

Anyway I would like to know what causes those blocked connections, that keep appearing every 30s.

I had a few ARP entries like that the first day but they subsided after awhile.

Celofan please start your own topic as your problem is a different one. That way your problem will get the attention it deserves and this topic will not divert.

Using block fragmented IP diagrams can cause problems usually when being on bigger networks like for corporations and colleges.

What the logs show is a device on your local network that did not get an IP address by the dhcp server of your router. May be a network printer?

Hmmmm i have no network printer or anything like that, I went into my router and looked around and everything there was accounted for and had a corresponding ip address i did an experiment and hooked up a second router to the one in question and connected my other computer to it, There were no more entries like these on that computer

I believe those are the ms-dos directory service incoming connections being blocked.They usually come in at port 445.
Its for file sharing.
Turning off file sharing may help and also turning off “log if this firewall rule is fired” in global settings i believe will stop these entries.

Thanks. is the broadcast address of the zero network or, which in Internet Protocol standards stands for this network, i.e. the local network. Transmission to this address is limited by definition, in that it is never forwarded by the routers connecting the local network to other networks.

IP broadcasts are used by BOOTP and DHCP clients to find and send requests to their respective servers.

And, yes, printer & file sharing may have influence here, as the host is interested what nodes exist on the network.

Furthermore, a Universal Plug and Play device advertises its presence on the network to other devices and control points by using the Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP). A new control point uses SSDP to discover Universal Plug and Play devices on the network. The information that is exchanged between the device and the control point is limited to discovery messages that provide basic information about the devices and their services, and a description URL, which can be used to gather additional information about the device.

Your computer will be unable to located uPnP devices on the network if SSDP is disabled. SSDP may be disabled if UPnP devices aren’t present.
