Question Smoothwall Log UDP 64986

Hi Guys,

I'm monitoring my Smoothwall Logs and I see multiple connections (or attempts) from different external IP addresses to UDP port 64986. Do you guys know what is this port used for? I don't have any open ports on my smoothwall firewall. Can
you guys help me?

I have a record like the one below from different IP Addresses every second.

Time IN>OUT PR Source Src Port Dest Dst Port
01:48:42 eth1 - UDP 65348 MY IP ADDRESS 64986

Rep: Reputation: 3 will explain the basics. The specifics of "who" is trying to access the port for "whatever" reason is beyond me.
