    When I look at /proc/net/ip_conntrack I see a line
    Code:
    udp      17 3 src=192.168.1.1 dst=239.255.255.250 sport=1900 dport=1900 [UNREPLIED] src=239.255.255.250 dst=192.168.1.1 sport=1900 dport=1900 use=1 mark=0
    This has something to do with Windows networking.
    But why is this broadcast to the internet? :confused:
    And why is Tomato the source of this broadcast?

    these are Multicast broadcasts, the IP Addressing gives it away. Its a Class D Address.

    if you dont need upnp then turn it off.
