We've noticed that the Windows 7 and above file discovery triggers a IPS/Firewall port scan alert. See below:

Somebody is scanning your computer. Your computer's UDP ports: 1900, 5355, 3702, 3544 and 67 have been scanned from 10.2.254.188.

 

Can you please test this out and tune this in the next release so that we don’t get so many false positives every time one of our clients go on a network that has a windows 7 machine?
