firewall reports issues
« on: December 06, 2007, 07:36:16 AM »
I have version 2.7 standalone

My firewall is reporting issues as follows which concern me. It appears that when the runcrawl.php is run a cron job, it "talks" to IP 83.170.104.103 which is hosted by xml-sitemaps.com

I am not a programmer, just a web site designer, but I wonder if it can be confirmed that there is "no problem" here. I have had a look at runcrawl.php and it is coded, so one can not see what is going on. Is it a "security feature" of the programme to ensure that it is a legit copy, or something like that

Here is an example of an email I receive from my firewall

Hello,

yes, this is only a security measure to make sure that the copy is legal. You can trace that http request to confirm that.
