They're the same, referring only to the Gateway firewall. I'm beginning
to think that it's only these three nodes that trigger alerts. Just out
of curiosity I'll track things more systematically over the next few
weeks. Since ther seems to be no real threat, we may as well end this
thread. Thanks to you & the other respondents, you've been helpful.

Since you suggest that :). I do have Debian running as a VM, but on the
100W machine. The 13W-machine's CPU (Intel Atom 2550) won't accept GUI
linux, & I haven't had time to look for & try a command-line distro.
As  long as the relay is running 100% of the time I'm reluctant to
change things. I'm pretty confident that the windows configurations are
malware proof. But yeah, by & bye when I get the time... - eliaz
