    Default Blocked incoming access attempts every few seconds

    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)?

    Thanks!

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

    Nothing to worry about. AS soon as your IP address is removed from the gameservers it should stop
