I noticed a bunch of inbound connections by SVCHOST. I don't know if they are new or I never payed attention to them.


I have seen many topics regarding Comodo and SVCHOST. My svchost is receiving connections from IPs Belonging to my ISP. The IP's changed only the last number since the first time i wrote down the IP. Another IP is listed as something as my ISPNetwork_backbone, not too sure what that means.


All these connections appear to happen at random times. The owners  of the process where "SSDPSRV," "Dnscache," "CryptSvc," "eventlog", "RpcSs".  They where a mix of UDP and TCP connections, and I'm guessing mostly local. The "owners" are legitimate system file. My computer appears clean. Also, the connections show bytes going in and out, I haven't looked at this in detail though.


TL:DR: All this caught my attention and I wonder if the tips found  here ---> https://forums.comodo.com/firewall-help-cis-b135.0/-t105069.0.html (reply #3) be alright to follow.
