New Netbook

I bought a new Netbook, installed it on the second port of my router, and I'm getting a load of hits in the Security History, of my other PC.

" Unused Port Blocking Has Blocked Communications. Inbound TCP Connection ".

What do I have to enable / disable to clear the anomaly. Tried a few things, no go.

Thanks. AK

Re: New Netbook

There should be more information to determine if it is the netbook making contact with your pc, or the router.  Do you have a home group set up?  Is the netbook sharing a printer through the first pc?

Re: New Netbook

All I've done is fired the Netbook up, and put the 2nd RJ45 lead of my broadband hub into the Netbook Rj45 socket. So as to access the internet and register my new Netbook.

When I disconnect the Netbook from the broadband hub, the hits stop on my other machine.

The missing line reads:-
Remote address, local service is ( My local address ) Withheld for security.

Re: New Netbook

You don't say what Norton product you have installed. Did you install it and if so was there any other security software on the netbook?

What do you have on the other PC?

Re: New Netbook

Sorry for the lack of info, it goes like this:-

My new Netbook is running McAfee Internet Security 30 day free trial. Win 7 Starter

My existing laptop is running N360.3 (I know, a previous build), this machine is logging the hits, in the Security History. Win Vista Home Premium.

The Line:-

Remote address, local service is ( THE IP ADDRESS OF THE WIRED NETBOOK, OR THE WIRELESS CONNECTION ).  Withheld for security.

With either machine, solely connected to my broadband, NOTHING, everything OK.

Regards. AK

Thanks AK,

I'll let one of the others who knows networking and N360 help you sort this out. Stay tuned!
