Help !
I have noticed recently that my internet connection is always busy even when I have the browser closed.Having checked the activity long in Norton I have the following connections logged - Localhoast 1636 to localhoast 1025,Localhoast 1639 to Localhoast 1025 and also redirected Localhoast 1025 from 1639 and the list goes on !!
Can anyone tell me what this is about ??

Do you have filesharing programs running?

No not that I am aware of.

I think the localhost is just that - it's Windows talking to itself. If you're on cable, the activity you see may be the modems handshaking.

If you want to view active connections, go to Command Prompt in Accessories, 'netstats -an', Enter.
