Eclipse makes conn to the Net
 
...and, how do I keep it from doing this?
I noticed that the lookup (when you have a class, and enter the dot, that's when there's a list popping up) is very slow, moreover, I'm paranoid at to where eclipse sends what, here's the address netstat found

Am I paranoid or right in assuming this should not be?

Thanks

Probably lack of DNS caching.

Next time use netstat with the "-T" flag for wide output, or better, use for instance "-ntpe" to keep if from resolving names (slow), select only the required protocol and post process data. The address seems to be an Akamai one.

There's no reason to be paranoid already because with tools like tcpdump and Wireshark you can investigate what data goes over the wire.

If it's not a configuration or plugin setting then you can firewall outbound requests to the IP address or subnet but doing so w/o understanding what you block may cripple functionality.

Hey unSpawn!

Thanks for a reply...just installed wireshark hzere and will try to find out if...

...this is true.
Of course, paranoia is not in its place here, but it's second nature to me...heh so what if my second nature is somewhat "darker" :)

Maybe it's also my "busy body" side of me as well...

I wouldn't call it paranoia just possessing a vigilant and inquisitive mindset, which is only good IMO.

Thanks...this is one of the reasons I use Linux today, there's always something new to learn. This could be completely innocent (nobody would be interested in what I write anyway) but it's a sparkt to learn something... :D

So do you have plenty of packets by now? Let me know if you need help with payload analysis.

Oooooooh, dont worry, I'll find you... :D

Edit - just did a capture, okay, this is an eye-opener...on my knowledge. A slightly humbling experience :) (in a good way, don’t worry) - I need to brush up on THAT stuff, I love Wireshark, GOOD suggestion from you part....thanks...
Edit 2 - Hey! it's Eclipse downloading help pages! Innit cool?
