      Firewall Bounces

      Can anyone help clear this up.

      This morning my Sky Netgear router firewall bounced a number of "DoS attacks" as below;

      Sun, 2006-12-17 08:30:06 - UDP Packet - Source:87.86.189.16,53 Destination:90.195.194.xxx,1038 - [DOS]

      Sun, 2006-12-17 08:36:45 - UDP Packet - Source:87.86.189.16,53 Destination:90.195.194.xxx,1057 - [DOS]

      Sun, 2006-12-17 08:48:45 - UDP Packet - Source:87.86.189.16,53 Destination:90.195.194.xxx,1057 - [DOS]

      I have deleted the last digits of my IP address, but address 87.86.189.16 belongs to "BSkyB Test Network".

      Wonder what "information" the Sky test network is trying to get? I assume that as I'm using firmware 1.02.04 the port is blocked but guess with firmware 1.02.08 that its open?

      Do I have a devious mind or can Sky check if your using their router?!

      thanks NewsreadeR

      I was worried it was because I'm using the standard Netgear firmware and not Skys

      If you want to stop that just enable DNS settings in the routers firewall

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
