I entered a question/post on NETWORKING regarding an "UNKNOWN LOCATION" on my network, and have since uncovered a monsterous mess that came about when I stupidly installed a free/shareware program called FREEPROXY. Long and short of it is I unistalled it shortly after installing because it didn't work worth a darn. I accidentally uncovered this "unknown device/IP address" on my LAN that was broadcasting like mad, when I installed the free version of Zone Alarm instead of the XP firewall default. Zone Alarm monitors inbound and outbound traffic. I suddenly was getting all these flags from a location that didn't exist, as far as I knew. As best as I can tell, FREEPROXY created a virtual device with an IP address and has been broadcasting to all kinds of real IP addresses running on very obscure ports like 49326, and the like. My gateway kept kicking me off when I'd sign in. I finally found a work-a-round to get on long enough to lock down the firewall (it's a real firewall Zywall 5 by ZyXEL-like a dope, I had quit monitoring my logs that it has been emailing me regularly-OOPPS! )
Has anyone had any experience with this program? It could all be innocuous, but, by looking at the amount of packets it spit out, I doubt it. Fortunately the inbound attempts to connect with this phony IP address were dropped by my firewall, but I have no idea what info was sent outbound.
If anyone has any info about this please REPLY ASAP! I goofed bad on this one!!! Thanks.
