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:126.96.36.199,53 Destination:90.195.194.xxx,1038 - [DOS]
Sun, 2006-12-17 08:36:45 - UDP Packet - Source:188.8.131.52,53 Destination:90.195.194.xxx,1057 - [DOS]
Sun, 2006-12-17 08:48:45 - UDP Packet - Source:184.108.40.206,53 Destination:90.195.194.xxx,1057 - [DOS]
I have deleted the last digits of my IP address, but address 220.127.116.11 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?!A simple crude speed test:-
