If it comes ALWAYS from the same source try to identify who or what it is and if it isn't somthing that you need in your life, block it permanently.

OK. I just installed a Netgear firewall box between a cable modem and a
NT 4.0 server on a small network.. and set it up to email me attempts at
security breaches. I am brand new to these devices and a relative
neophyte to internet/internal network security.  So the question is
I received this message a few times yesterday after I installed the box:

Fri, 02/14/2003 20:35:01 - TCP connection dropped -
Source:, 80, WAN - Destination:, 20306, LAN -
'TCP:Syn Flooding' End of Log ----------

What should I make of this?
