    drew-tx, my network does not launch denial of service attacks and it does not portscan people. It serves webpages and that is it. I don't know why your firewall thinks my system is attacking you, but I am betting the problem is on your end, or it is coming from someone spoofing their origin. Eric

    There is nothing running on my network that could probe or attack someone's computer. I don't know what firewall you are using, or what settings have been set on it, but there is almost certainly a banner ad, or something else equally as harmless, on GT that is causing a false-positive with your firewall. Either that, or someone attacked you and spoofed the origin of the attack. Eric

    Well, there you go. If it were really a DoS attack it would be pretty dumb for it to stop when you're not looking at GT.
