Hundreds of "Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" Messages

Hello, fellow Norton users 

As of today, after looking in security log, i've seen that messages like "IP address has disappeared from adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface", each followed immediately with "Protecting your connection to a newly detected network on adapter "Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" has been popping EVERY minute. And such thing is being logged for the whole day now. Even more confusing is that apart from this, there's no visible suspicious activity going on my PC, like internet-connection being interrupted or any Windows errors. 

Antivirus says that no action is required, but this constant messages appearing every minute do scare me for some reason  So, just wanted to know if this are just normal Norton things or should i be concerned about this?

I'm using Norton security with Backup v.22.8.1.14. OS is Windows 8.1 with all latest updates having being intalled.

Usually, these are normal firewall log entries that are created whenever a network connection is detected or the connection is later closed, in which case it is no longer being protected because it isn't there anymore.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teredo_tunneling

The Category: Firewall - Network and Connections section is detecting Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface as a new adapter. Teredo tunneling is a method of tunneling Internet Protocol version 6 (IPV6) traffic over an Internet Protocol version 4 (IPV4) network and is able to work from behind network address translation (NAT) devices such as routers. For more detailed information on how this protocol works, please refer to Teredo: Tunneling IPv6 over UDP through Network Address Translations.

As to frequency, maybe router is polling the devices on your network.
