Norton Internet Security message: A Remote System is Attempting to Access Generic Host Process for Win32 services on your computer. Details are: Program -svchost.exe Path: c:\windows\system32 Protocol UDP (inbound) Remote address Local address: All network adapters 1026 Location: default

I am connected wirelessly to an access point at the moment and NIS keeps popping this one up. Do I allow or not? The recommended action ispermit always!

It`s the remote system bit I don`t understand. Is it actually another computer trying to get access? Another one popped up, almost identical but the remote address was 41469. Is this something to do with the network?

yes this file is part of the network settings.
