Port 6943 opened by Idea

Why is this. This seems to be the same port that is used by BitTorrent. I would not like to keep this open. Why is this used, it was not there on previous releases, just perhaps this past week or so. Could it be another port.

This is with Release candidate II or later...

Ok, but why?

And could it be set to use another port (if that port is used by another
application)?

I do not like the fact that Idea (which for me is a legitimate software) is using the same port as BitTorrent which I do not have on my system and would not like to have. My firewall recognizes these as BitTorrent ports and I spent some time looking thru my system if somebody had slipped BitTorrent like program as a trojan.

So please, could we use other ports...

it must not keep it open for long because it seems to be closed on my machine. Did anyone figure out what they are using the port for?
