I am running Outpost Firewall on a Windows 2000 machine. I have broadband internet connected to this machine
There are 5 other computers on the network. They access the internet through this machine.
I notice in the DNS Cache that the site xxxx.yairnet.org has been accessed over 40,000 times in this session. If I look more closely, I see that there is an (attempted) access every few seconds.

has anyone any ideas?

Thank you!
