Random outgoing connections from Spigot

Discussion in 'Spigot Help' started by jk779, Feb 16, 2015.

  1. Hey,

    Out of curiosity i just ran a netstat -nptwac (in- and outgoing connections) on a server with no players on it (its behind NAT at my lan, so i'm sure nobody can connect).

    I found this: http://pastebin.com/RfWKj2j7

    Namely, there is a about every couple minutes a connection from the server (process: java) to What is this? Plugin Metrics is opped-out. These only appear when spigot is running. This also happens when using Cauldron (cauldron-1.7.10-1.1207.01.198-server.jar) on another server. No Plugins, no Mods. I'm scared. What is Spigot connecting to?

  2. Two things, 1. you probably shouldn't put your ips here and 2. Im pretty sure that it is just connecting into your router, either that or your running multiple servers
  3. Spigot has its own metrics tracking, and that is the IP for mcstats.org

    $ ping mcstats.org
    PING mcstats.org ( 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=63 time=0.186 ms
  4. Thanks Absentee23! Thats good to know :)!

    @joben: There were only private IPs shown (, so no need to be careful :)
  5. didn't notice I really only skimmed it
