that's certainly possible.  essentially, it's nothing to worry about, but
i'll try to explain it below.

DC_NOP is a No OPertaion.  it doesn't do anything.  on windows, it is sent
to "wake up" another thread.  (it causes network traffic, which breaks that
thread out of select() )

the command itself is a READ level command.  probably you are requiring
authentication for READ (or all) commands.  in the case of a NOP, it just
blasts off a UDP packet without authentication, and thus is denied.
however, it still had the effect of waking up the thread.

essentially, that failed NOP is a successful NOP. :)

if that doesn't confuse you well enough, feel free to ask more questions
and i'll explain further.
