You can go significantly longer than that to cut out some of the extraneous strings that would be printed.
You could also use a packet sniffer to catch the outgoing connection from your local computer.
Or you could just call Oracle and ask them what the URL is.
Yeah I could ask Oracle, but I was thinking this would be useful to know for any application.
I thought the answer might have been something like a packet sniffer, but I was kinda hoping someone would just say - check this logfile
I dont know what the binary is, but the strings method sounds intriguing. I have never used the strings command before - will have to check it out.
