Same attacker trying over and over to break in

  1. My firewall is repeatedly and frequently blocking the same
    address from breaking in.

    Anyway to fire back or track these jerks?

    I see your point, but don`t think there`s much you can do about it.

    Just tell your firewall not to alert you to that particular intrusion attempt again. As long as your firewall software blocks it, I wouldn`t worry too much.

    If it`s any consolation, I get exactly the same intrusion attempts, but I tell my firewall to block them and not to alert me again. Port scans are very common and that`s what you have a firewall for in the first place.

    Regards Howard :)
