Interested in knowing what IDEA is doing

Hi folks.

I installed Kerio Personal Firewall yesterday. I'm getting regular
(maybe every 10-15 minutes) reports that IDEA is doing a multi-cast
broadcast and I wondered if anyone knows what it's about.

I get an outgoing connection alert:

Direction: outgoing
Local Point: 192.168.0.6, port 1054
Adapter: Dell TrueMobile 1150 Series Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card
Remote Point: reserved-multicast-range-NOT-delegated.example.com , port 9876
Protocol: UDP

Application path: C:\JAVA\PALLADA2233\BIN\IDEA.EXE
Description: LaunchAnywhere GUI
File version: 4.5.2.0

immediately followed by an incoming one:

Direction: incoming
Local Point: All , port 9876
Adapter: Dell TrueMobile 1150 Series Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card
Remote Point: 192.168.0.6 , port 1054
Protocol: UDP

Application path: C:\JAVA\PALLADA2233\BIN\IDEA.EXE
Description: LaunchAnywhere GUI

It's not that I think anything terribly suspicious is going on but I did
install KPF for a reason and I'd like to know why IDEA is doing this.

Regards,

Matt

Checks if someone in your LAN is using the same license key like you :).
If you are the first who started the IDE with key "A", all the other
users won't be able to start IDEA with that key.
