I was watching the denied traffic on my Firebox x1250e Firewall.  And noticed some traffic that seems odd.  These two computers keep having denied traffic to this one blocked IP for unknown reason.  here are the denied messages from the traffic Monitor.

2011-09-28 15:03:12 Deny 10.3.11.8 172.16.1.30 snmp/udp 1040 161 1-Trusted 0-External blocked sites 106 125 (Internal Policy)  proc_id="firewall" rc="101"       Traffic

2011-09-28 15:03:29 Deny 10.3.11.78 172.16.1.30 snmp/udp 1042 161 1-Trusted 0-External blocked sites 105 125 (Internal Policy)  proc_id="firewall" rc="101"       Traffic

Have run virus and malware scans all coming back clean.  Have nothing on the network with a 172.16 IP either.  No idea why this traffic is happening.

You could use Process Hacker or TCP View on those two computers to check which application is actually making the connection to the blocked IP addresses.

TCPView:

Thanks, TCPView helped.  It never showed the 172 IP address, but I was able to match up what was happening TCP activity with the deny in the firewall.

Turns out, this was related to spoolsv.exe  These computers had a TCP printer port for the 172.16.1.30 address.  No idea why, since we don't use a 172 internal.
