    Any networking gurus out there?

    In Snow Leopard, I'm noticing that I get a lot of these messages in Console now:

    That 68.87.73.242 address is my Comcast DNS server.

    They show up as a Info type message in Console. No real problem, just curious if anyone else is seeing that.

    Yeah I have that too, though I think it has also been in Leopard.

    yep, I gotten that in leopard too. I pretty sure its because you have the stealth ports setting enabled in the firewall options

    I think now in Snow Leopard, they are showing these messages in the standard All Messages Database search, must not have been in Leopard....only in the firewall.log
