Question about BlackIce Defender...

I have it set to paranoid, before @Home changed over to Comcast I've been having the same problem but it wasn't as odd. BlackIce flashes yellow in my system tray about every 45+ seconds saying * is "HTTP Probing"
or "UDP Probing". I started to block every host since 3 weeks ago. I have a list of around 80+ clients from that domain I've blocked. But the oddest part is it's always that domain but a different client. It's starting to get on my nerves. How come when I block this person, I still get attacked?

Hard saying what the probing is, but most of the [email protected] cable companies have been running scans to make sure they are doing the transfer between system without a problem. I have received multiple calls from my local service, Cox, saying they are not getting the responses back from my machine and it must not be configured for the new network. I have to tell them, it is not going to respond, it is a firewall.

I don't use Blackice so I can't help much. But you may be interested in what Steve Gibson says about Blackice vs. Zonealarm.
