My firewall busted my SDL app trying to access my network. There isnt any networking code, and I never initialized SDL's network system. It just randomly tried to broadcast.

Am I right in thinking this is SDL- why is it doing this? I suppose it isn't a huge issue but it is an annoyance I'd like to kill.

You prolly have a virus that jacked a DLL or something that SDL uses. It looks like it is trying to do some crap to your router.

Try running Dependency Walker on the program and look for any network-related calls. That might help narrow down the issue.

It's not just SDL that does this. All of my apps tend to do it when they've been running and I connect to the net. I don't think they're actually trying to do anything. I personally think the firewall's not too sure of what's going on since it's just found out that there's a connection available, and it has to find out what apps are trying to connect to servers.
