My computer has logged several times that a DNS server with the name "n/a" has tried to connect with my computer. Mcaffe did not detect it but my outpost firewall did. No, I am not running to firewalls at the same time, however, my Mcaffe Antivirus is Active alongside the Outpost Firewall. Could it be a conflict between these two programs? I do not think so because it is a connection request and not an outgoing request to connect to another computer. It logs an IP address with it so I looked it up on google but could not get any information for the IP. Here is the log from my firewall:

RPC DCOM Attack- Logged on 1:43:55 AM, 9/11/06

IP Address:
Attacker DNS name: n/a
Attack Type: Connection request
Last Attack Time: 1:43:55 AM 9/11/06
Scan Port Details: ICMP (Echo Request/0)

Attacks Detected: 2
Portscans Detected: 0
Connection Request Detected: 182

Thanks to anyone who can help me out on this one.
