    what's my computer doing here please?

    hi

    i have a raspberry pi set up with a couple of cameras. there was a problem with the wifi dropping out and it would not reconnect so i found a cron job online which seems to be working. i was just checking my logs (sudo nano /var/log/syslog) and there are some IP addresses that i do not recognize. i was wondering if anyone could please tell me what my little Pi is up to and what these addresses might be?

    Hi

    ntpd[2240]: 193.190.147.153
    ntpd is the network time protocol daemon.

    It sets the time on the raspery pi by getting the time from servers on the internet.

    I suspect those ip addresses are time servers but you can double check.

    Kind regards
