Actually, it might be best to just drop (and not log) packets to these ports
which are flowding your messages' log and log the rest. That way you log

Thanks for replies.  One thing I'm certain of: Vanguard is issuing 53.
My internet cable service issues 137 and 138 only when I go into Vanguard.

I do not see anyone else doing this and do not understand why these do it. It only occurs when I go into Vanguard. Vanguard is very slooooow, by opening up these ports I thought it would speed things up but immediately closed them when it did not and will not reopen them. This is not rocket science but I could not find info on these ports, need to look further.
