Windows 7: Noob question

Noob question

Please forgive my complete lack of knowledge concerning the subject I am posting about.
I seem to have a mental block when it comes to networking and firewalls.

My question is... should I be worried about the following connection (see screen shot below)

FYI... I am not connected thru wi-fi...I do not have a router...I connect directly to the modem supplied by my ISP.

Nope. First it is UDP, not tcpip. Second the destination IP. Third the amount of date transmitted.

As long as you have a firewall and AV you dont need to be worried about this one.

Haha, I don't know what most of those words mean, but I am glad to hear that there's nothing to worry about.

All the other connections in my firewall log make sense, but this one confused me.

I'm using Comodo internet security and it has taught me a lot.

Thanks
