port 55135

Seems for the first time ever, my DSL box has allowed connection from DSL box to computer via port 55135

message says

port blocking allowed 192.168.xx.xx (55135)

I have done a search and cannot find anything on 55135 and find nothing.

Anyone know what this might mean?

As my Norton is the inbound firewall, I post this question here

Re: port 55135

Hi there,

this may be a running VoIP connection, as port range 55123 to 55135 (udp) is used for that.

best regards,

Re: port 55135

thanks

what is a VoIP connection? And why would that just start now?

Re: port 55135

Do you have any kind of phone system connecting through the internet?  Skype, for instance or Vonage.

Re: port 55135

No we don't have any online phone services

Could it just have been a "misdial" or maybe just some simple error?

Re: port 55135

Voip=voice over internet protocol (at least that's what i think the P stands for )

Re: port 55135

ot likely to be a method of system attacks eh?

Re: port 55135

Unsure as nearly everything can be used as  a form of attack with computers....MSN can use Voip as well.

Re: port 55135

 does this sound alarming? The "address" that shows this being allowed through is my DSL box (not router)

Re: port 55135

This link would suggest that because this particular mode of communication on this particular port is tied into online gaming and is only responded to by the actual application that uses it, that a UDP call might be allowed by a DSL box through the firewall, but without the application to answer it, the packets are dropped.

You also do not have a hard two-way firewall.  It is not going to react the same way as the full Norton version that you get by updating to NIS or  updating NAV and installing a free firewall like Comodo.
