Community edition server making requests to 75.101.133.159

SonarQube 8.3.1 docker

TCPDump shows server making frequent requests to 75.101.133.159, even when idle. What is this for, and can it be blocked without affecting operation?

Hi,

Welcome to the community!

When I plop that IP into a browser, I end up at the SonarSource blog. I can’t imagine why your SonarQube instance would be requesting that.

What does strike me as a possibility is telemetry, but I thought that was only supposed to fire weekly. Do you have any more information about the request? For example, is there a payload?

I got the same result when using a web browser. I discovered this when using tcpdump and inspecting with wireshark. I’ve attached a portion of the wireshark view.

Hi,

I never was all that handy with Wireshark; can you tell if information is being sent to the address?
