Hello and welcome to our forum,

The question you are asking cannot be answered with yes or no.

The answer should be investigated by a technician and the thread identified or the Firewall properly configured.

If you have any kind of issues with your BullGuard, I recommend you contact Support, free, so you can get personalized support.

Getting more port scans blocked by firewall, when I do a lookup of the ip adress,it shows google as one of the ip's, so false positive.

But some other ip's show fro UK so not shure on this one and my own home network devices like wifi printer and roku getting intrusions.
