nmbd wants to connect...

Post by Mikofox » Fri Nov 09, 2007 6:51 am

nmbd wants to connect to tynangroup.com on UDP port 16151.

Can someone enlighten me what initiated this and if it's something to be concerned about.

I had the same problem. nmbd wanting to connect to everyone under the sun. What worried me wasn't the outgoing connection, LS can presumably block that, what worried me was where nmbd got this address to begin with (no, I'm not a network expert, maybe the answer is obvious). I configured LS to block all outgoing for nmbd and smbd, and Leopard firewall to block all incoming to the same processes.

I'm not sure why smbd is even active. I don't have Windows file sharing turned on...
