Sygate firewall has started to block IP addresses that has never tried to 'reach' me before. Sygate is blocking all attempts, but I'm wondering why on earth anyone is doing this!!!

I have the destination host if that helps: 172.190.201.233

What on earth is going on?!

click here+ That is an AOL address, is your ISP AOL, if so these attempts are all handshakes which is perfectly normal.

Is your ISP AOL?

If it is their just probably checking your computer is still connected. It's harmless and your firewall is working.

Your ISP is America Online and you're being attacked by the French. It is well known that the French hate Americans (and every other nation) - don't worry about it.
