    Default Accepting connections from the internet?

    Everytime I boot my laptop, before even opening my Internet Explorer browser,
    ZA Pro 7.0 asks me if I want to accept connections from the intrernet to explorer.exe via my wireless
    Linksys router,
    address 192.168.1.1 port 1900. If I deny it permission everything seems to work fine anyway, as far as I can tell at least. Can anybody tell me whats
    is going on?
    Should I just allow this to always connect or not?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Actually the 192.168.x.x is your router and the port 1900 is UPnP.

    If not using Internet Messengers or using any networked devices, then just disable UPnP in the Services (found under the Administrative Tools of the Control Panel). That should quieten it down.

    Thank you for responding. I currently have 3 computers networked, and share files among all of them, as well as a networked Lexmark printer.
    Should I still disable it?

    BTW, where can I learn
    more about
    port numbers?

    No, do not disable. The file sharing and printing on the home network is used. Besides it is just happening on your own home network. No risk is involved.

    Port information starts with some port database info and of course the IANA port listing. But that is just a start- there is lots more info available on the 'net.
    Best regards.
