I am using Ubuntu 10.10 x64. And my problem is, when my computer is idle sometimes I observe some anonymous traffic activity going on! Not in bytes, it downloads and uploads something at the rate of 40-50 kbps and cause I have limited internet data usage(2.5GB/month), I observe sometimes more than 50MB of total data transfer / idle hour! Now this gets on my nerves. I'd be okay with it if I had unlimited internet connection. But I have not!
I googled, and I came up with the package named "EtherApe". Though which all these activity is redirected on some servers based in Canada. (I'm in India and my ISP's international server is in Bangalore, India)
Here are names of those nodes. (as per displayed in EtherApe)
I'm not able to figure out which application/package is sending/receiving those data. Can please someone help me out with this?
