I'm running sygate freebie home FW, and since I wondered what
ntoskrnl.exe needs to be calling out for all the time I set to block
it. On the applications list is shows BLOCK. Yet the program continues
to get incoming calls on port 138, and send returns on that port. And
it is doing all this to IP xxx.xxx.xxx.255 (my IP, but with 255 instead
of me). None of my g00gling around about ntoskrnl.exe explains why it
should do this, what that address is about, and why should sygate be
allowing this? Helpless newbs need to know.
While we're at it, I keep getting port scans to a variety of ports, and
sometimes these come in bunches of three or four. Often I'll be playing
an online game and it will crash, and when I see the desktop the red
incoming arrow is lit up, and the log invariably shows several such
scans blocked. Are these scans knocking me off my game connection?
Philosophy: That attempt to explain why so much about life makes us cuss.
