FIREWALL ALERT Question Please:


McAfee is giving me a FIREWALL BAD CONNECTION ALERT every time I open my email: eM Client.

Where can I find the "Bad Connections Blocked" REPORT?
I want to see which sites or items McAfee is blocking.

Thanks for any insight!

Hi @Pattee ,

Please share the Mcafee Version Yu are using. If you are using Consumer version, you can find the report under My Protection>>Security History.

You can also reset your firewall settings to default if you feel that its a false positive.

For any further assistance, each out to our Consumer support team.

Re: FIREWALL ALERT Question Please:

I found the Security History.  This is a short snap:

Suspicious incoming network connection blocked
Source IP address:
For Last 24 hours
The PC tried to connect to TCP port 55177 on your PC without your permission.

Since this discussion group does not allow File Attachments & McAfee doesn't allow copy/paste, I must save screen shots to save to a PDF, then Recognize Text so can copy. 

The Security History doesn't tell me much. I don't know how to identify IP addresses. Sorry to be ignorant on McAfee.  I'm taking good notes!!............Patteee
