netstat tells me there is connection from/to (?) magentocommerce, for instance:

tcp        0      0 server_ip:49737       server_ip:80            TIME_WAIT   -
tcp        0      0 server_ip:39654       TIME_WAIT   -
tcp        0      0 server_ip:39655       TIME_WAIT   -

I can reproduce these logs (the number of lines from varies a lot) when logging from backend on the 'magento connect' interface. Mainly by clicking 'check for updates'.

  1. Are these logs only produced by user interaction or is there any automatic connection?
  2. If that's auto-connections, can we set somewhere a time window for it?

Your Magento installation connects to magentocommerce.com to get the Admin Notifications you see under the menubar in the Admin section of the shop.

The cron settings for this connection are under System > Configuration > System > Notifications

  • ok, that's one point. What about the other? (how to setup a time window for these connections) Commented Jun 24, 2015 at 13:24
  • Ah right, updated Commented Jun 24, 2015 at 13:27
  • Still have frequent connection, despite the configuration set to 24h (and hit the save button), is there a daemon to restart, database manipulation or something else? Commented Jun 25, 2015 at 14:38
  • nope, you could do a grep over the whole codebase on the url grep -Ri 'magentocommerce.com' . and see what comes out of that Commented Jun 25, 2015 at 18:06
