I run diald for connection to my ISP, using dynamically-assigned IP addresses. I run Netscape 3.01, and Apache (but only for running dwww; not as an external server.) When I have been browsing out of my own domain, and shut down Netscape, unwanted connections appear on the connection queue and cause the modem connection to be kept up. They do not appear before Netscape is terminated. The current example says: tcp 188.8.131.52/80 184.108.40.206/12321 and was started with 2 minutes TTL. (220.127.116.11 is www.exeter.ox.ac.uk, whose site I was looking at 10 hours before I exited Netscape; the other address is (I think) a dynamic IP address which a previous session must have used.) As soon as one of these expires, a new one gets started, so I have had to block connections until it gives up and goes away completely, which takes 15 minutes or more. It is evident that Netscape is somehow responsible, but it is not running! I cannot find out what process is doing this. Can anyone suggest what it is or how to find out? -- Oliver Elphick Oliver.Elphick@lfix.co.uk Isle of Wight http://lfix.co.uk/oliver Make it idiot-proof, and someone will breed a better idiot.
