OS: Win ME
Kerio Personal Firewall

I am trying to understand what is going on with my firewall.

I have 2 months + of logs showing this message every few seconds:

Rule 'Packet to unopened port received' :Blocked: In UDP,;67->localhost:68, owner:no owner

Can anyone tell me what this means and if it is something I need to worry about?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I think it's a port used by DHCP server which issues you the IP address.
I would think you should allow Kerio to listen to it and acknowledge, but an expert needs to confirm.
Are you having internet problems?

This description of various windows ports does NOT include ME, so I don't know if it may have changed
Normally port 67 and 68 go together.

Thanks for the reply.

I have internet problems now and then, but nothing consistent. I am going to try allowing it and see what happens.

Thanks again,
