Why does IntelliJ connect to this IP?

I was curious why IntelliJ always tries to connect to 69.20.9.113 on port 80
when I start it. This is a different IP than the one used for plugins.

i would guess that it may be looking there for updates. The first time you load intellij you can allow it to always check for updates.

Good question. It's a server named blogs.jetbrains.com hosted at Rackspace in the US.

Care to offer an explanation, Team JetBrains?

Turn off check for updates if it bothers you.

Doesn't bother me... just curious. It was easier to ask than to port sniff. :)

I AM jealous about your G5 Mac, though

Are you sure that your DNS is set up properly? There's no reverse lookup
defined for the IP address.
