Own IP pings HFS every 5 minutes?
« on: July 29, 2010, 08:30:17 AM »
I noticed an issue that cropped up yesterday sometime. Every 5 minutes on the dot I get a "Requested GET/" from my own internal IP. It's really driving me nuts trying to figure out whats causing this.

I know its a long shot, but any ideas on how to trace this and see whats causing this?

I've been getting this problem too. Except it's my external IP, and not my internal.
It's been happening since about yesterday as well...

At first it was because I thought that keeping the particular tab open in my browser (from when I "Open in Browser") was what was causing it, but even after I closed the tab, it continues "Requested GET/".

Any ideas anyone?

I'm sorry, I meant my external IP (it was early in the morning). However it is still occurring. Also I'm running build 260 ATM.

I haven't changed any settings on my router for months so I doubt it.

use a software like tcpview or cports to see if it's a software running on your computer

Yea I just analyzed the HFS logs some more and it starts up as soon as I sign into my laptop in the morning, odd.

another thing you can do is to enable "dump request" in the log menu just for the moment the strange connection happens.
it should be easy since you said it's very regular.

I did that, but it doesn't tell me much.

Mine isn't doing it anymore...at least at the moment, but if yours is still doing it Ranger, try monitoring your line with Wireshark.

If mine starts to do it again, I'll do the same.

It's looking like it happens when I start up my FF browser and leave it on as the pings start at that time. Wonder if it's an add-on. Guess I'll have to disable one-by-one to see if i can pin it down some more.

If you find it, let me know. ;P
I have tons of addons, so we might have something in common.

Well I think I found the source of the problem. It's the add-on "NoScripts" (disabled add-ons one at a time).
In particular it's a new setting added in 2.0. Options -> Advanced -> ABE uncheck WAN IP.
