Inbound UDP packet

I use NAV2008 on an HP desk top running Vista home premium Vista Service pack1 with DSL connection on 24/7

This morning I rebooted my computer and I noticed in the activity log the following entry

 8:19:10am  Inbound UDP Packet allowed

Local address, service is (MY PC)Remote address service is (192.1*8.*.* domain(53))  (I replaced some numbers with * to keep me safe

Process name is N/A 

Not sure what this means. Concerned that it is something negative, but no bytes shown and I think the IP address is my DSL.  I did notice that in my connection log this: 

8:19:40am    connection to 192.1*8.*.*       ( I replaced  some numbers with * to keep me safe but it was the same address as above)                   

From (MY PC)212    bytes sent, 1631 bytes received

 I’m thinking these are connected and may have something to do with logging on and connectiong with my DSL service provider. From this limited information, does this sound normal?

Re: Inbound UDP packet

Hi,

Port 53 is DNS and this is very common traffic which translates a hostname to an IP address (ie: www.symantec.com -> ip address).

Thanks,

Re: Inbound UDP packet

so getting the inbound UDP packet is not an issue? Once I got an inbound UDP packet from an address located in Russia, which freaked me out considering all the crap they do there
