    It's OA's IP address. I suppose it is for checking for updates.

    OA-Free doesn't check for updates, but it does check with it's database for safe apps. and adding what you've marked as safe...

    Hi all,

    monty is right except if you unchecked "send anonymous informations ..." in options tab so uncheck this option and remonitor your connection. When you allow an action for a non trusted progs, this information is send to Tall Emu.

    Regards,

    MaB
