Clarification Request
Look OK to me.

Maybe if you had removed the No Action Required items I'd find Waldo or the issue but what's the concern here?

I didn't realize it all copied when I first posted. No, Waldo wasn't in it- just words like 'tunneling' and 'pseudo' which made me think my Norton protection had been compromised. Fortunately Carol provided a kind and clear answer to my concern. But, thank you anyway. Lynn

And all I could find was informational messages and nothing that needed action or alarm.

You do raise a good point. Should software expose techy output like that?

Re: Teredo Tunneling Pseduo-Interface

See the last post in this thread:

'The internet is inexorably moving towards adoption of a new protocol, from IPv4 to IPv6, which will, among other things, solve the problem of having nearly run out of available internet addresses. During the transition, which will last many years, Teredo Tunneling is one method of getting IPv6 traffic though NAT devices that currently abound in an IPv4-dominated world. The Automatic Learn IPv6 NAT Traversal Traffic setting in the Norton Smart Firewall monitors this IPv6/IPv4 traffic coming into your computer. When a network connection is detected you are protected. Protection stops when the connection no longer exists.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/cc917486.aspx
'

Or the short version here where it states ..."'it's perfectly normal. Teredo tunneling allows IPv6, the newest internet protocol, to work in a world of devices that only know IPv4. It's complicated.." See the following post about disabling the Microsoft IP Helper service, if you feel you don't need it.

Best of luck

I wrote to cnet since I'm not tech savy and need helpful people like you to calm my fears about names like 'tunneling' and 'pseudo'. This is a great site!! especially for people like me. Thanks again. Lynn
