Security alert?

  kissag 16:31 22 Feb 2005

Keep getting a security alert:

Norton Firewall has detected and blocked an intrusion attempt

Invalid source IP address..

But the computer it states is my own computer and IP address, how is my own computer trying to access itself and bringing up this information?

It is coming up all the time, everytime I click OK, it comes up again, so I have to just leave the info at the bottom of the screen and get on with my work.

Should I click on "Dont create a security alert for this threat again" or is there a problem that needs sorting?

[quote]"Dont create a security alert for this threat again"[/quote] - sounds like a good idea to me.

I don't know much about networks, but would not be over concerned about that one.
