LaunchAnywhere used for IDEA EAP acting as a server. Why?


When running IDEA EAP 3.0, 668 my ZoneAlarm asks me if I want to let 'LaunchAnywhere GUI' to act as a server. Does anybody know why? It seems to work fine even if I say no.

I've searched the web, but can't find any security information on LaunchAnywhere.

It think its's java(w).exe, not LaunchAnywhere, that triggering ZoneAlarm. Just my 2c.

It's most likely Idea's copy protection that listens for other Idea instances to broadcast over the network to make sure duplicate keys aren't being used.
