    Hello world,

    I’m happy with my ADSL connection from a major french provider, moreover the TECOM modem from Hitachi is quite flexible and reliable, so I’m lately disappointd by the unusual wave of “Stealth Mode connection attempts” in my logs… yes yes, I know that’s the strategy of the enemy. smile

    I’m still protected by OS X firewalls and a modem onboard firewall, but could I also disable IGMP to avoid incoming ping?
    More exactly, what happens to my browsing perfomance if i disable IGMP Multicast?


    TIA
