I posted this question on 10/05 within a reply to a different problem, but I haven't had any feedback. I guess I didn't submit it correctly, so I'm trying this again. (I'm new to forums.)

I was trying to solve a different problem, when I tried using SystemSuite on a clean O.S. (vs. Symantec).
When I connected to the net, I got my ususal I.P. # (and modem gateway I.P. #), then I noticed that the firewall logs showed something strange. It showed NT Kernel & System with a different Local I.P. #, and it belonged to the Dept Of Defense (Dod). And that I.P. # had a strange Remote I.P. # affiliated to it. (This is different from the internal gateway or modem I.P.). Finally I installed my Symantec, but the I.P.'s don't show up anywhere. I tried Adaware, HiJackThis, plus a variety of tools to look at processes. I have my system set to show all hidden/super hidden. I use XP Home on a new notebook with SBC DSL

This is a sample of 3 different days: (port 61576) My Local I.P., belongs to Dod (port 65535) Remote I.P., don't know who, Brazil Internet (port 6382) My Local I.P., belongs to Dod (port 65535) Remote I.P., just says IANA Reserved (port 64741) My Local I.P, belongs to Dod (port 63675) Remote I.P., just says IANA Reserved

There is no reason for my computer to be connected to any governmental agency. This is really bothering me. I was hoping that someone might have some idea of what is going on??
