I have numerous entries in the log from this service trying to access the internet.
I have seen this question asked elsewhere but not properly addressed.
What is this service trying to do? Several different ip’s are listed in the log.
For me this program works good, I have had no issues since install.
I ran a packet sniffer because I had the same question as you and found that the System Idle Process packets were packets that had been lost in transmission and a request for a resend of that packet always followed.
I don’t know why System Idle Process is showing them. Possibly a way to show garbage packets. I’m just guessing on that one though.
I can sit idle and watch the list grow by refreshing the view. I guess I could kill the internet connection and see if it stops? I have a feeling the request will continue and the list will grow.
It ‘feels’ like it is a request? for what thats worth!
is a multicast address
and 192.168.0.1 is probably your router
port 1900 is plug and play
this is an inbound not an outbound connection
This is probablly you router trying to set up a managment link to your pc in my network places.
As OD said, it could be your router (or some other UPnP device). Check your documentation to see if any of the hardware connected to your PC requires UPnP. If so you will probably need to configure a rule to allow Inbound connections from that device.
First of all. Awesome firewall, love it) . I have used it since 2.4. I fell so secured using it and at the same time its also easy to use , and on top of that its free. (L) Love u work with this firewall:d And the rest of your product.
Now on to the “problem” Before i installed the comodo Personal Firewall v3 i could put my computer on standby. But afterwards i cant. It somehow blocked it. I saw on the log and it i saw that it has blocked
the system idle process a couple of time. How do i do to put my system on standby mode again?
I have a big problem. I upgraded today to the new v3(.0.13.268) and first a request for the “system idle process” appeared… I blocked it (without remebering my decision).
After, I opened my Browser and expected an other request for allowing Opera… but nothing appeared… It was blocked :\ I tried other applications and all except ICQ was blocked as well.
I was wondering… after a restart, I allowed System Idle Process. I retried Opera and a request didnt appear again, but I was able to use Opera => Firewall allowed it…
I mean… a Firewall has to detect applications like Opera and other well known programs.
I use: cable/WLan; WinXP Pro SP2;Admin and User (both has the same prblem);Kaspersky Anti-Virus 7; BOClean 4.25;
