Firewalls and Os files??

I'm useing Win98 and I'm on dial up internet access I have a personal firewall running at all times, called Kerio a vary nice program. But now and then when I check the status I see new things on the list. 99% of them I know what they are and what to do with it but now I see this.

[Appliction]       [local IP add]  [remote add] [Status]  [cration time]  [Rx]
KRNL386.exe  TCP      IPaddress      ------    Listening     date/time     0
KRNL386.exe  UDP      IPaddess       ------    Listening     date/time    50
KRNL386.exe  UDP      IPaddress       ----     Listening     date/time     0


There is an IPaddress there but I didn't want to post it, you never know what people can do with to much info.

*Question*
How is does my Keral have to do with the internet?
and why does only one UDP show as 50?
whats going on?

Thanks

I have figured out my own question sorry for any wasted time in this madder.

Again sorry.


All I did was set my firewall to block that file from getting out and nothing happened I was still able to send mail and get out to the Internet so we'll see what happens now..
