Thread: networkmanager is calling home

  1. #1

    Default networkmanager is calling home

    Hello, I've just caught, using netstat -antp, the networkmanager-process connecting 195.135.221.145:80, (nslookup says this is migration2.opensuse.org)

    I don't like processes knewing all my wlan-passwords calling home!

    What is this good for, how can I disable this? I cannot find this ip or name in the whole /etc-tree :-(

    using tumbleweed with xfce-desktop..

    do:

    Code:
    ping conncheck.opensuse.org
    PING proxy.opensuse.org (195.135.221.145) 56(84) bytes of data.
    ...and then read on here:

    OK thanks!
    and "man NetworkManager.conf" explained it further

    But I've never seen a yellow triangle in the systray...

    positive side-effect of disabling the connectivity-section: no more frequently reconnects due to mistakable connectivity problems (caused by the hotel-network I'm connected to these days)
