I'm using TOR, and when doing netstat I get:
... tcp 0 0 XXX.XXX.X.X:58208 hufu.ki.i:etlservicemgr ESTABLISHED ... tcp 0 0 XXX.XXX.X.X:47353 68.71.46.:etlservicemgr ESTABLISHED .., have it many times
Somebody could explain me this?
I confess that I did not know that some ports coudl be used "officially" by companies/cooperations. Why I have an ESTABLISHED connection with them? This is happening always?
And most important: how do I block this, or any other unauthorized connections!!
Thank you very much.
Waiting for your answers.
EDIT: Ok. I just saw that it is used by TOR. But still intrigued. Waiting for your reply (...sorry for the overreaction )

gromlok. Mostly likely it is just tor using port 9001. Just because it is registered/assigned doesn't mean it won't get used for something else if somebody wants to. They just can't register it if it is already registered.
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/to … ter/TorFAQ search in the page for "9001" and you will find it.
