    That explains it better than I can. You can allow IGMP on the ports and protocols tab. In 2.0, this is noted as used by Streaming Video/Audio.

    I have a similar problem logging on the firewall log.  The following event happens frequently but at different times and almost on an hourly basis for some periods and some lag between them.  The following event brings the computer out of standby (full S3 State) and for a time I thought it was bios related but it is not. It is really getting to me and given the fact that the Program is labeled as Uknown and the source is Unknown.  I am afraid of letting it through by enabling igmp on the firewall.  I'd like to get to the source of the request (the program thats making it happen) and remove it.

  • The IGMP packets are probably being sent out by your router or another device on your network.
