What does this alert mean?

Date/Time :2007-01-25 20:25:39
Severity :Medium
Reporter :Network Monitor
Description: Inbound Policy Violation (Access Denied, IP =, Port = dhcp(68))
Protocol: UDP Incoming
Reason: Network Control Rule ID = 8

I keep getting these kinds of alerts. I don’t know what they mean for but I don’t remember getting them with the old 2.3 version. Is this somehow contributing to the slow down I’m experiencing with utorrent downloads? In the old version I would just get lots of ICMP alerts but none of this kind.

Rule number 8 is the default blocking rule in the network monitor. I only added rules to open ports for my p2p apps.

They are DHCP broadcasts. Nothing to worry about :slight_smile:
The host is either booting up or renewing his IP address. CFP is dropping them.
