While investigating why my computer should want to access a wide variety of IPs belonging to a company named Akamai Technologies, I have noticed the following:
Zone Alarm s vsmon.exe seems to attempt to access one of my ISP s DNS servers, well specifically the one that I blocked.
There are three DNS servers. I decided to block one of them as the number is not in sequence with the other two. Since
to hard code them into Zone Alarm to get things working, my thinking is that should
decide to change IPs, they are more likely to change this odd-ball IP.
Anyway, while there are absolutely no applications running and I m doing absolutely nothing, vsmon is accessing the blocked DNS server (well according to my Port Explorer). And as Ive blocked it, the blocks are showing in ZoneAlarms log. Any ideas why?
