DOS and Port Scans

Should I be concerned about the following  DOS and PORT SCANS reported by my modem/router?
Could someone enlighten me on what they mean?  Thanks.

Re: DOS and Port Scans

This is quite normal - just people poking your router half-heartedly to see if it has open ports in weak effort to break through your firewall.

Re: DOS and Port Scans

Thanks for the assurance. Judging by the time (1 month) it took to get a reply from the forum and the absence of "I have the same problem" posts it seems I am the only one who worried about nothing.

Re: DOS and Port Scans

Port scanning has been a security issue for a while now, and the internet community seems happy to live with it. Several of the IP addresses on your list have also scanned my ports on several occasions. If you put the IP address into   https://www.ipinfolookup.com/    You can see where the address is located in the world and how many others have reported problems with that IP address. Most seem to be in places like China, Estonia and Russia. I'm surprised that there is no route to report these addresses to Plusnet so that they can block those IP addresses from their end. Luckily, most routers block the access, but all of these unsolicited port scans every day have the potential to slow down the internet for all, but nobody currently cares it seems!

Re: DOS and Port Scans

The amount of traffic is trivial and many of these IP addresses are dynamically allocated, so the geographical address is going to change periodically meaning that you are trying to cause trouble for mostly the wrong person.
