    Default Repeated Warnings from Same IP Addresses

    What's going on here?
    I just recently installed Zone Alarm, and I keep getting a message from the Inbound Protection saying that it blocked an outside attempt to access my computer.
    But, a lot of times it's the same IP address.
    Also, The link to the online
    security advisor says it's in Port 139 but the message that comes up from Zone Alarm says it's in TCP Port 1481?
    Is this Internet Background Noise, or is there someone attempting to access my computer specifically?
    Can you permanently block IP addresses?
    Can I punch in this IP address somewhere and permanently block it?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.5

    Ok, here's the exact message:
    Zone Alarm Security Alert


    The firewall has blocked Internet access to your computer (NetBIOS Session) from (TCP Port 4383) [TCP Flags: S]

    Smart Defense Advisor says:

    ZoneAlarm blocked access to port 139 on your computer

    No breach in your security has occurred. Your computer is safe.

    ZoneAlarm prevented a remote computer from connecting to port 139 on your computer. If you are sharing files on a local network, this connection attempt was probably legitimate network traffic. Port 139 is commonly used by networked Windows computers to enable file sharing and other resource sharing. However, if the traffic that generated this alert came from the Internet rather than a local network, this may have been attack on your computer

    No. ZoneAlarm blocked the connection attempt, so no harm can come to your computer from it. However, blocking traffic on this port can keep you from sharing files and other resources with other computers on your local network. Also, Windows file sharing can represent a security vulnerability if you do not password-protect your shared files


    I am NOT on a network, this is the only computer in my home.
    I have a cable connection.
    What the deuce??
