My outgoing firewall on Windows XP SP2 fully patched is telling me
that the Generic Host process for Win32 Services is trying to hit
63-217-20-36.sdsl.cais.net - IP address is 188.8.131.52.
There are quite a number of other IP address ranges none of which
belong to Microsoft. The port 443 hits to indeed belong to Microsoft
so I've permitted my firewall to pass those.
What the heck is going on? In the past the IP addresses belonged to
akamai.net so I was willing go along with that.
I *DESPISE* how Microsoft has made these generic host processes so
utterly difficult to understand and track just what the heck is going
