My PC (new Dell machine running Win XP Pro SP2) sends several Outbound UDP
packets at intervals of 10 to 15 minutes to IP addresses in the range
64.4.25.80 to 64.4.25.87 port 3544. The addresses "reverse lookup" as
"baym-td4.baym.hotmail. com" or similar. The address 64.4.25.86 seems to be
connected with

teredo.ipv6.microsoft. com (64.4.25.86,3544)

which is something to do with a transition arrangement for IP version 6.

The packets are sent from SVCHOST.exe.

I have now blocked them in my firewall, since I don't know what they are or
what they do.

I am unable to find out anything else, and want to know what program is
sending these packets, and why.

Can anyone help??

Don

Don, don't worry, what you're seeing is not the behavior of any malware.

Your computer has the advanced networking pack and an IPv6 stack installed.
Traffic to port 3544/udp is called "Teredo," a specification for tunneling
IPv6 traffic inside IPv4. Your computer is only checking to make sure a public
6-to-4 gateway is available, one we run.

Unless you're experimenting with IPv6, it's best just to remove it. Go to
Control Panel | Network Connections. Right-click on your LAN adapter and
choose Properties. You'll see Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 in the list; just
remove it.

Thanks Steve. Deleting IPv6 has stopped the outbound packets.
