[204.74.214.194]: why is this IP address making calls to GLP from my computer?
I'm a computer programmer by trade these days... Every so often, I check my router logs to see who's coming and going...and I see outgoing messages made to internet protocol address: [204.74.214.194]

This is a GLP site...what's up with the calls you're making from my local machine without my permission? Adobe or your Voice Chat install has hooks into my machine now?

I'm sure there's a logical good explanation...so please enlighten me.

Thanks.

If you've used the voice chat, then the flash actionscript has to connect to GLP's servers to stream audio and video and other data from GLP's servers.

What is so strange and hard about that?

You, being a computer programmer, of anyone, should know that it is normal for socket connection to be used for voice chat.


You're making me laugh man.. You sure you're a programmer? I think I am better one than you. hahaha.

It's got nothing to do with cookies you numbnuts.


Socket level connection is allowed when you use java applets or flash modules.

The catch is these modules do not have the ability to scan your computer's drive.

But it is normal for them to connect to their server for other purposes like voice chat, text/irc etc..

Flash actionscript 3.0 allows sockets level connection just like Java applets.

Any plugin registered with native code is allowed to do that, short of allowing the scripts to scan your folder.
