    Exclamation What's this: ec2-174-129-227-92.compute-1.amazonaws.com

    Hi,

    I can see my computer always connected or with an idle connection to:

    ec2-174-129-227-92.compute-1.amazonaws.com , local port 42877

    Can someone explain to me why and what's that? I am running Lucid.

    Thanks in advance,

    Do you use Ubuntu One to backup/sync files or email contacts etc.?

    Yes and not. It is NOT configured on this PC. I just installed Lucid recently and have not had the chance to configure. I do use Xmarks though but not sure if uses that address/port ...

    Code:
    sudo netstat -tnp
    Probably something related to:
    http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/

    Well, I know the connection is there because my conky ...so, thanks for the netstat suggestion but not so much help here. My question is more related to "why is there and how can I block or shut it down". Is that a Lucid feature that by default opens or connects to that address?

    Re: What's this: ec2-174-129-227-92.compute-1.amazonaws.com

    Simple. Run the netstat command above and it will give you the name of the program and the PID. Then you can use ps to find exactly what the command is.

    Code:
    ps aux | grep PID
    Replace PID with the actual PID

    Once you know what it is then you can go about disabling etc etc whatever it is.

    DOing what in my Ubuntu Lucid? ...

    I can easily kill the PID but would like to know why and what's doing on my system ... does it come with Lucid and its part of a built in feature like UBuntu ONe or something like that?

    Did you follow the instructions in my previous post? We can't help you figure out what it is doing if we don't know what it is.

    ps aux | grep 14375
    las 14375 0.0 0.1 3592 1600 ? SNl 04:30 0:00 ../../projects/wuprop.boinc-af.org/data_collect_1.39_i686-pc-linux-gnu__nci
    las 25839 0.0 0.0 4020 752 pts/1 S+ 04:40 0:00 grep --color=auto 14375
