How do I change my IP address on Blueyonder Broadband? - I'm getting continually attacked by one Ip address in Italy whose ISP refuses to acknowledge or reply to reports (most of them do respond). Or, better still, is there some way I can hit back at this nice person?
Are you running a firewall. If so you should be able to trace the route back to who exactly it is that the IP address belongs to. I had a similar problem once and it turned out to be a bank. After contacting Zonelabs I was informed that this occasionally happened with banking systems and it would probably disappear (which it did). Can't remember any more than that.
However, they were very helpful and would have sorted it out if it was suspect. Personally, I also use this prog which is excellent click here
You are NOT being attacked. All that is happening is that your computer is being 'handshaked' by other computers, servers or routers. They do this because computers have a total lack of morals and are always pimping themselves to other hardware on the net. The 'alert' is merely another main server checking to see if you are online (so that any downloads etc go to your address) or requesting a connection (which it cannot have unles you allow it. Turn off the alerts and surf like there is no tomorrow.
