After exiting the computer game, World of Warcraft, I repeatedly get incoming access attempts from a wide variety of source IPs to my IP port 3724, once every 2-4 seconds. The access attempts get blocked automatically according to my settings, but I can confirm them by the inflating inbound protection number and log file. This continues until I shut down or restart my computer. I am aware that port 3724 is associated with World of Warcraft, and it is recommended that the port be opened. Unfortunately I do not have Zone Alarm Pro, otherwise I would have made this customization.
My question is it "healthy" for my computer and zone alarm program to keep blocking attempts every few seconds? Should I be concerned about this problem, or just let the number of blocked access attempts increase? Is there any way around this, such as allow World of Warcraft to act as a server (I have no idea)?
