Romania IP Address communicating with pfSense during installation
In the process of installing and evaluating pfsense onto a pc to checkout features, strengths and weaknesses etc, and I noticed the installation was communicating with this Romania ip address 188.8.131.52.
Does anyone know why this ip address should be communicating with pfsense during the installation process? I wouldnt have thought this should be happening hence the question?
What port and type of protocol? maybe NTP?
Has to be NTP, just goes to ntp.org's pool which may be any number of different servers.
I didnt have the port number only the IP address but it was during installation so could well be have been ntp.
Having just looked up 0.pfsense.pool.ntp.org - 4.pfsense.pool.ntp.org the IP Addresses listed by https://pfsense.mylocal.com/diag_dns.php dont return the Romanian IP address in any of its results, so looks its not a time server.
Maybe there is something else in the installation that talks to a Romanian server? If so any ideas?

Are you sure that the .ro ip wasn't attempting to connect to your ip?

Keep in mind that all the *.pool.ntp.org addresses change. Knowing what they are know doesn't tell you what they were a few minutes ago, let alone days ago.

Exactly, you'll get different responses every time.
