Hello, all.

I am trying to decipher the following three lines from recent router logs
of mine:

Thu Aug 31 10:31:35 2006 Unallowed access from to protocol=6 rule=-1 Sun Sep 03 07:32:17
2006 Unallowed access from to
protocol=6 rule=-1 Sun Sep 03 07:32:20 2006 Unallowed access from to protocol=6 rule=-1

Do these lines mean someone was able to get through my router on Port
22, or not?

Also, any idea what "protocol=6 rule=-1" means? Protocol 6 is TCP.

Thank you.

Someone tried to access your PC with ssh (port 22)
I don't think that they got to the PC.
You would have to look in the router manual what rule=-1 means.

That is about all i can tell without knowing what router model and
software you have. (Even then i would have to try to find a manual ...)

Do you have a computer on your network with the address ?
If so; is that computer running Linux or *BSD? --> Check the logs on that
Is that computer running Windows? Firewall enabled? Good!

If you don't have a computer at that address: no damage done!

But most probaly that action got blocked in the router.
