    hey wilders, for my seoncdary xp home 32bit pc i use geswall, and i found something interesting. i found out by typing netstat into the command prompt in windows and i found out that gsewall service was connecting to unkown.hostforwebs.com in chicago. why does geswall need to connect to this?

    Don't know but I've noticed Geswall connecting to the web. I block it with my firewall as I don't like programs connecting when it's not necessary.

    It connects to unknown.hostforweb.com to see if there are updates.
