I'm relatively new to these issues, so forgive me if my
questions have obvious answers. I have many lines like
this in my firewall logs:

10/23/2001 17:23:21.352 - UDP packet dropped -
Source:216.20.63.145, 53, WAN -
Destination:216.20.115.5, 9318, LAN -
 	 - 	Rule 0

The source address is my ISP's DNS server. The destination
address is the firewall. Anything to worry about? What is
indicated?

Thank-you,
