Posting CFP Log examples (not the whole Log) is a solvable problem… so, let’s nail this first. Otherwise, we cannot see what you are seeing…
CFPs Log can be Exported to an HTML file by right-clicking on the Log (Activity tab) & selecting Export to HTML. This will export the entire Log to an HTML file. Open the HTML file with your default browser (the one you’re using now) and use a simple click-drag-select Copy ‘n’ Paste to post quoted example Log entries here. Like this (from an old Log of mine)…

While I find the log entry here is Microsoft messenger communicating with RIPE even though I closed messenger. Its scaring me now as my computer is being reported as clean from rootkits, viruses and spyware
I think you’ve misread the whois of 184.108.40.206. RIPE is the overall net block owner (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168). In short 22.214.171.124 is not RIPE. In is in fact a Wanadoo user (now owned by Orange) probably based in Liverpool.

I’m sorry, I cannot answer your question unless I’m provided with more information. For instance… you have not told me the IP of “Lithium Industries Ltd” or the circumstances surrounding the detection of the IP.
5MB? OK, that’s the default Log size. Have you tried increasing it to… say… 25MB.
Also a Reverse DNS Lookup of 184.108.40.206 revealed the name as nintendo.lithium.com. Wii? It seems that Lithium has several major companies as clients… Nintendo, Creative, LinkSys, DoubleClick, Sprint & AT&T… any of these ring a bell in terms of software/hardware that you have?
The log problem I have brought up on the forum as well and contacted support over it but no one as any idea why it keeps resetting the log size (and yes I have tried changing it). Everything was fine then bang loads of problems from no where. The only thing I change on the computer is Avast updates.
Thanks… nasty formatting (see my example, did you select from within your browser?)… but, much easier to use (cutting wise).
Ah… OK. These are other Tiscali users & you have a Dynamic IP (which is good, as it changes). These could be hopeful wannabe hackers (looking for vulnerable systems), worm infected systems searching for a new host or just users who have file-sharing turned on (which are seeking other hosts). Do you run any P2P (file-sharing) applications… if so, which ones? Also does the Source IP change… or is it always 220.127.116.11?
