Norton firewall is not a secure product?

I see this entry in my Norton Security firewall log, what does this mean? Is it  a device/actor that is accessing my network without my consent, how is this possible?

Looks to me like its 1 of your devices that was switching to IPv6 and back to IPv4 is all. Nothing to be concerned about at all.

? Where do you get that notion? Thats an ISATAP connection. Do you see the pictures?

ISATAP is an IPv6 transition mechanism meant to transmit IPv6 packets between dual-stack nodes on top of an IPv4 network

Those messages can occur when your DHCP lease runs out and gets renewed.  Have you checked your adapters with   ipconfig /all? You should see an entry for a Tunnel Adapter isatap with the IP address in the Norton message.

Again, just normal. Nothing to worry about.

I could ping 192.168.0.10/13 in cmd, but it doesnt show up in ipconfig/all.

Those entries in the log occur unsystematically almost every day and come and stay (see pictures) for a few second to many minutes.

Does it coincide with when you start up your computer, or when it comes out of sleep/hibernation?

I see the same entries in my Norton History just after my computer wakes. I checked my ipconfig and I see a Tunnel Adapter isatap listed but with no IP assigned.

AFAIK  This is just normal behind the scenes operations that happen when you start Windows.

Maybe this post in Microsoft Answers can shed some light for you.

It doesnt coincide when I start computer or connect to LAN on my version of Norton Security. As of today there is no entry of ISATAP in the log.
