    Port usage

    My firewall reports a lot of programs using ports 67-68 to connect to what seems to be my DNS server, are they used by any specific Windows application, and if so, which? If it is not used by any specific application, could anyone please explain me the high activity on those ports?

    Zair,

    Look here for common incoming probes against your firewall.

    Paragraph 1.1, referring to ports 67 and 68 says, "Firewalls hooked to DSL and cable-modem lines see a ton of these sent to the broadcast address..."

    Hope this helps.

    Zair-- I like the signature.

    Hope the info you recieved on the ports helped.

    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.
