Ive been trying to figure these responses out for some time.. Im getting these messages on my Xfinity firewall: FW.IPv6 FORWARD drop , 794 Attempts, 2022/8/20 01:15:02, FW.IPv6 INPUT drop , 6280 Attempts, 2022/8/20 01:15:02, FW.WANATTACK DROP , 20 Attempts, 2022/8/20 00:45:09. Any Help...

I believe someone is connecting to my WAN, therefore, my second question is how do you block someone from connecting to WAN?

Lastly, what information does someone need to forward my IPv6?

Those logs mean that the router and its firewall threw those connection attempts away, as it is supposed to do.

People are trying to connect, and failing.

Every system on the internet gets connection attempts, all the time.
Just routine scans, looking for a vulnerable system.
They literally cycle through every possible IP address, hoping something will answer.

"how do you block?"
You already are.
