(details are a bit shakey sorry)

Ive had a couple of alerts saying that system was recieving a connection from another computer. Or at least i think thats what it was saying. It was along those lines anyway, that it was recieving a connection from somewhere. The first one i allowed as it happened when i was opening an online game called Guildwars. It was in port: nebsess(139) . Anyways i thought it was to do with this. However i got another couple of alerts while browsing the internet. Was wondering if this was normal or not. I blocked the other cases as i werent sure how to act.

Any help?

Hello athelos,

In most cases, you should block incoming traffic unless you have specifically requested it.

Here are a couple guides that discuss firewalls and IP addresses that should help you understand what's going on.

I just dont want to be blocking a legit programme that needs to be connecting to the internet. Ive just looked at the firewall log and in the last hour system has been blocked 19 times. But I'm not very computer literate and dont know whether system should be connecting to the internet fullstop.
