There is a strange ip that is accessing my computer over UDP port 1900. The ip is: fe80::ceb:e12a:5013:6fba

Firewall log states, "someone is trying to access my computer over the internet. Remote address fe80::ceb:e12a:5013:6fba (UDP Port 1900) to ff02::c (Port 1900)

I tried to look up that string of numbers and letters with no luck. From what i've read Port 1900 is used for plug and play or something of that nature. I tried to block that port with my firewall, Router with no luck. Anybody know what that string of digits represents?

Thank you

Thats a MAC address not a ip addres... Run your netstat command in the command prompt. And post what it says. Ill trace them...

Thanks a ton! I think i might of found it. I could not pull up stats on UDP connections through netstat. I got a *:* after UDP connections. I have a Vista pc on the network with media sharing turned on so checked the connections with that machine and was able to get alot farther into figuring all this out. It has that mysterious mac address as the (preferred) Link-Local IPv6 Address. Is IPv6 a standard protocol? as far as i know it is supposed to replace IPv4 or something. In the description of one connection it states: Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface (sounds like something from the matrix). Im going to look all this stuff up but in the meantime, i think its pretty safe to go outside now!
Thank You
