How to block I.P. Addresses


I have Norton Professional which includes a firewall. Sometimes I get a security alert telling me a Trojan Horse was blocked, and clicking on details provides an IP address, which often varies. How can I tell who is attacking my computer? The IP address is just numbers. I've tried doing a search and yielded nothing.

Every IP address coresponds to a different computer I strongly suggest that any IP address alarming your firewall be blocked This can be done by clicking:

- tools

- advanced firewall settings

Next, copy the IP address attacking you, and paste it in "IP addresses to be blocked".
