    I recently installed Sygate Firewall, and when lookin at IP's who have tried to connect to me i noticed one which my firewall had to continuesly block and at many different ports.

    I used a brilliant site called http://www.arin.net/whois/ most of you probably heard of them.
    Well anyway i searched the IP and tracked it down to a branch of my ISP, who are NTL.
    They are called ,

    NTL-UK-IP-Block

    Take a look here.>> http://www.ripe.net/perl/whois?form_type=s...o_search=Search

    Can anyone who has knowledge of this kind of thing shed any light on the situation ?

    erm...sharing copyrighted material is against the terms and conditions in your isp contract...

    why shouldn't they be tracing you?

    yeah sygate detects those udp packets that your isp sends and blocks them (isps are always sending out udp requests to "check" on their customers)

    don&#39;t worry your firewall is doing it&#39;s job

    I&#39;ve noticed something similar.
    When my downloads reach a certain speed, netlimiter shows that windows messenger is connected to NTL infrastucture centre(something like that anyway).

    Perhaps someone is bored and is doing a portscan. But that&#39;s unlikely.

    What exactly are "UDP" packets, and what exactly is my isp looking for.

    Im getting at least 5 of these an hour.

    I copied this from norton firewall help.

    Some Internet service providers scan the ports on users&#39; computers to ensure that they are keeping to their service agreements. Norton Internet Security might interpret this as a malicious port scan and stop communications with your cable system. If this occurs, you need to let your cable provider run port scans.

    To allow ISP port scans
    Do I need to do anything ?

    Or shall I just leave it, as i obviously dont want them to see what i am doing.

    They must be getting pretty pissed off, they are blocked all the time

    screw these ISPs . Paying 50 a month for 384 DL and 128 UP is enough. But being spied on? I have Zonealarm now and now my ISP cannot snoob in my personal life.

    Yeah I get the UDP packets all the time most of them come from your ISP but some also come from other bullshit, I read an article a few months back that was saying every home computer gets hacked about every two days but most people don&#39;t have anything of value so they just leave. I would suggest if your that worried about someone in your computer buy a router and a good firewall program that should keep most people out. If someone wants in to my computer let them come on in I back all my shit up anyways on a computer that I disable the internet on so its all safe. The worst thing you can have on your computer is banking and credit card purchases. I have a ghosted drive of my OS with everything I use regularly and I re-format weekly to get rid of all the crap.
