Only way u will know for sure is to use a sniffer to see what traffic is
actually coming in.

Subject: Hot Brick Software Firewall
I am trying the Hot Brick s/w firewall (for personal use) for the past
few days. I have found that it shows a lot of "denied" traffic in its
list - and this list is quite extensive and some among the list have
close to 1000 attempts in a day or so.
I have been using Sygate before and the denied list was quite small,
compared to now.
I am wondering if Hot Brick is generating a lot of false positives, and
maybe I should switch back to Sygate again? i dont see the network icon
showing any network traffic, but the firewall is going red like there
is no tomorrow!
Any ideas/suggestions would be appreaciated.
