    I was wondering why Peerblock 1.0+ (r484) - Beta Release - Bogon list is blocking a LAN IP address.

    The entry in Peerblock is:

    Time 15:28:10 Range Bogon Source 0.0.0.0:68 Destination 255.255.255.255:67 Protocol UDP Action Blocked

    From what I understand from the Peerblock Bogon list, the blocked connection should not occur (that's why Peerblock blocks the connection.) Based on my very limited networking knowledge, this doesn't seem to be a LAN broadcast, but maybe a multicast. If so what is being "casted" and why?

    My home router is Linksys WRT160Nv3 running : Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (01/02/10) mini

    I run Kaspersky Internet Security once in a while to check for viruses but I don''t download much, I just look at websites, and Kaspersky tells me I don't have any Viruses or Trojans.

    My printer is connected to my (see above) box via USB (shared) and I can print just fine from all computers. I keep my printer turned off most of the time because I don't print much. My (see above) box is connected via wireless and I have a laptop and Iphone that connect to the router with absolutely no problems.

    I am trying to figure out what is being blocked by Peerblock and why this is occurring.
    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time.... !
