    Service running?

    i checked the netstat command on my personal PC and i observed that it's establishing a connection to a foreigner address 88.208.250.70:443 (note that this is only connection established no other services is connecting to Internet). i start my investigation to gather more information about the IP using nmap, whois, wireshark. i came to know that the IP is hosted in UK for FastHost UK Network.

    my concern is why my pc is connected to the above IP what kind of service exchanged? i run wireshark to analyze the traffic. and i observe that my PC first is sending a SYN request. a complete 3 way handshake complete and SSL connection established. the info given by wireshark is Continuation Data. i didn't get any more details.

    from the firewall i create a rule to block the inbound and outbound connection.

    my question. since my PC is starting the connection how to know the service or the software run? in order to delete it or kill it.

    Just block everything via your firewall and wait for something to pop up asking for permission to establish a connection.

    might take a while though

    What kind of service?

    Just Google them and you will find out.

    Scumbags lost this one:

    And have been in trouble with our Advertising Standards Agency:

    I find it hard to imagine McCocolo as pure as the driven snow, but......................sort of reminds me of SCO

    So, the question is, does the connection always go to that IP address?........ if it is fixed please let me know, as I am based in the UK

    yes it's always connecting to the same address. maybe i have a backdoor that send a request to that address or a running service requesting the same.

    i fix it by blocking the the IP from the firewall. but i want to know the root of this connection to kill it.

    Since you based in UK maybe the IP belongs to you

    Use netstat -bn, look for an ESTABLISHED to that same IP address, note the PID. Look in taskmanager or process explorer what that PID is.

    It is a proxy server and appears to have been taken down at the moment, so it might not be your ISP blocking it, perhaps they just can't connect?

    Some torrent or other download sites are not quite what they seem...........warez sites are certainly to be avoided
