    Solarwinds Scanning Help




      Our firewall is blocking an onslaught of communications requests coming from our solarwinds server to a bunch of random IP addresses that don't even belong to our network. Solarwinds is trying to communicate with these IP's using service nbname (UDP/137) as well as TCP port 135. I have no idea what service or application running on solarwinds is making these requests. I have already checked the Sonar settings and the subnets in there are ok. Any ideas what application or program might be running in the background on Solarwinds that would cause this? I pasted a log from our FW below. As you can see since none of the subnets are relevant to us, there are no rules in the firewall allowing the traffic to go to them so it drops the requests.


      Any ideas? Thanks.
