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 :frowning:

using tumbleweed with xfce-desktop…

do:

ping conncheck.opensuse.org
PING proxy.opensuse.org (195.135.221.145) 56(84) bytes of data.

…and then read on here:

:wink:

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)
