So I set up a rule in PeerBlock to observe certain things.
I blocked all the local IP numbers on my network (ranging from 10.0.0.2 – 10.0.0.255, except for 10.0.0.26 which is this computer’s IP number, and 10.0.0.1, which is the router’s IP number). So PeerBlock blocks 2 unknown IP numbers (10.0.0.3 & 10.0.0.7) attempting to connect using port 137. Sometimes it’s only once every moment, and sometimes 4 to 5 times within a few seconds or so.
I went to the router’s settings (at http://10.0.0.1), yet those two IP numbers are Not listed in the devices that are connected to the router.
So what are these devices and why do they keep attempting to connect to this computer?
Thank you for reading/helping me with this.
