    Hi all, I have just noticed that when using Azureus, peerguardian2 detects /and prevents multiple http connections to oversee.net (204.13.160.129:80) from azureus. The average seems to be a burst of 3-5 attempted connections, recurring every ten minutes... I've tried to set azureus to only use my selected data port, but it always requests more access, which I granted(trend micro 06 firewall). Checking the azureus upnp log, it says that ports 80, 6969, 8008 are not enabled, and azureus is also set to ignore any peers on port 80... Googling oversee.net brought up a reference to 'search and browse' adware

    Basically, should I be worried? Is this a sign of 'search and browse' trying to use azureus to connect? Why would azureus be trying to use http anyway?
    note- i think it's azureus, but checking the open ports whilst this is occuring, i haven't yet found an exact match for any of the outgoing ports... but it only seems to happen when using azureus...
    Also, for each ten minute cycle, the attempted outgoing port is different, as if it's cycling thru to try to find an open port. All scans I've run have come up clean.
    Can anyone suggest a free program i can use to see which programs are using which ports to connect to where, and which keeps a log of them all?
    As a side not unrelated to anything else, ping.exe cannot 'ping' 10.0.0.138, which is my default gateway. Should it be able to?
    Thanks, argus
