Being an amateur I'm questioning what my Server is doing when I open my OE and IE. I have it blocked by ZA but have traced on NeoTrace. If I may, I'd like to explain what it's doing and hopefully someone can tell me if this is proper. The Trace show this order: My PC to Dallas/FtWorth area, bouncing around from Plano to Richardson to FtWorth again, then to England, that's the Country of England, back to the Dallas/Ft Worth area and finally to the Server itself. Each time I open OE or IE it logs a trace in the order above. Why would My Server want to do this and especially, why through England? I've not mention DNS numbers as I'm not sure this would be proper on the Forum. Does this sound right? Am I being overly protective by blocking this action?
