just recently when i run the odd backtrace on a person scanning ports on my machine i used to be able to run who is and get feedback this now does not seem to work and infoems me i may need to update my tools or visit ripe website which gave me no help
any ideas?

People are NOT scanning your ports. These 'alerts' are merely handshakes from other computers on the net that need to know that your ports are ready to accept information that you may have requested (a web page) or just scanning to see if your are online. Using RIPE is a total waste of time and effort. Forget tracing IP addresses and spend your time more profitably.

Try click here

But GANDALF <|:-)> is correct - waste of time.

ty and he/she maybe right but it does not help. your link (after page cannot be displayed) took me to a link i did not understand. but basically all i was after why not work now as has done before, however much of a waste of time.

Something needs reconfiguring but it's too complicated for me. click here is a better alternative anyway. I recently had a lot of port scans from China- not a spot my ISPs frequent. The next thing was processor running at 100%. PC had to be wiped and windows reinstalled. I have now disabled all UDP traffic which seems to be where whatever it was got in [av and trojan scans showed nothing].
