Hi there knowledgable people.

This device is continously trying to connect to my computer. Is there any way to know what it is? Im starting to suspect my new Iphone11, but i dont know. SO i dont want to grant i access.
It seems like making a rule to deny access is not working over time.

No. I would like AirDrop to work.

How can I know that this computer "fe80::etc" is?

The fact that program:system makes me a little less nervous.
But I still don´t want to let an unknown computer acces my system.

The IPv6 address range of fe80::/64 is reserved for internal IPv6 use within your computer. Normally, it should not be restricted.

My hunch is the fe80 address shown in your screen shot is your IPv6 gateway/router. I am not familiar with Eset Cyber Security Pro. However on Eset Windows based products when the firewall Public profile is used, IPv6 traffic from the gateway will be blocked since its not considered a trusted device.

On Windows systems, you can determine what IPv6 addresses are assigned to what devices by opening a command prompt window. Then enter:

netsh interface ipv6 show addresses

You will have to research what is the equal to the above for a Mac.

I tried and gave up itman.

I pulled the power from my fiber-converter thus disconnecting my self from the world.

Upon restarting my phone the same requests appear (but slightly different fe80 adress)  I gave it acces. I hope I didnt let a evil program into my computer from my phone. To me that seems unlikely however.

And as Marcos mentioned, airdrop now works as it should between these two units =)

Appears:

arp -a for IPv4 addesses

ndp -a for IPv6 addresses

is what is used on OS X for network address info.

Here's a cross-reference of Win network commands to other other OS equivalents: https://cromwell-intl.com/networking/commands.html
