Re: What are these security alerts about?
I would say that the Mac OS is doing a netbios name lookup to the virtual Windows machine. It is a local address so you can add it to the trusted zone. The exact range is 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 The reason that reverse DNS can't find it is because everyone with a LAN potentially has one. If you want some really boring reading I can give you a link to the RFC for Address Allocation for Private Internets. I guarantee it will put you to sleep though.
