21st March 2005, 02:00 AM
Hey just did a netstat -tupa with this result '134.70-85-88.reverse.t:http' ther was about 15 of these at once.
anyone know of what this might be?

if that's not part of your local (which I doubt) network address bank, or your own IP address, or a vpn connection you setup. I would consider seeing where it might resolve to with a name lookup.
This is on a personal computer and not a server is it? And doesn't boot from a server either does it?

Its on a fresh install "workstation" option with system tools developer tools etc connected to dynalink adsl router.

then the IP could just resolve to an update site--reverse the address given to and see where it goes.

Is the computer doing an update while it says this?

Its the the minus signs between 70-80-88 that has me confused ? 134.70-85-88

Bring up etheral and see what kind of traffic is coming/going if any.
How long have you been connected since installing?

21st March 2005, 03:03 AM
about 8 hours all up

I would use ethereal and monitor it for a bit.
Do you have a Firewall running?
