Zone Alarm query

When Zone Alarm warns of an incoming alert,is there anyway of knowing who or where it is coming from?
I daringly put the number in the browser window and tried to find out.Is this a wise thing to do?If it is OK what number sould I put in there because there are several windows that could mean things to people who know about such things,and I obviously dont.Is it SourceIP or Source DNS?
Just interested thats all...thanks if someone can answer what may be a silly question.

It isn't a silly question. You can trace an IP address click here and click here

Some firewalls, like my McAfee, will do a trace for you.

However, you'll soon get bored with this. Just rest assured that ZoneAlarm is protecting you and enjoy your 'puter.
