Hello all

Iv had this problem for a while but not found anything about it
so i thought id ask here.

Often when i use an open window in any app or sometimes in the finder i will get a message from little snitch saying it that the program is trying to connect to 5.167.13.48 via smbclient on port 139.

I block this when ever it happens but just struggling to find a reason why it would be doing this.

I believe 5.167.13.48 is not actually in a routable subnet.

any ideas?

thanks

Thats an IP address not a subnet Class A

Its IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) from a quick google search for the IP IP Address Lookup (http://ip-address-lookup-v4.com/lookup.php?ip=5.167.13.48)
