Renoise Trying To Connect To The Net

Er… Why?.. :unsure:

Monotron

probably because ur using some hacked vst/i :P Or just some whack vst/i that sends your information to their server.

it does not. it might be a vst doing this, but right now renoise does not have any network code.

maybe not renoise trying to connect to the net … some hackers trying to find a way into your pc … icmp requests or something else … don’t know

if you havent already try running netstat an look at what your connected/ing to
(netstat -n)

 NETSTAT [-a] [-e] [-n] [-o] [-s] [-p proto] [-r] [interval]  
  
 -a Displays all connections and listening ports.  
 -e Displays Ethernet statistics. This may be combined with the -s  
 option.  
 -n Displays addresses and port numbers in numerical form.  
 -o Displays the owning process ID associated with each connection.  
 -p proto Shows connections for the protocol specified by proto; proto  
 may be any of: TCP, UDP, TCPv6, or UDPv6. If used with the -s  
 option to display per-protocol statistics, proto may be any of:  
 IP, IPv6, ICMP, ICMPv6, TCP, TCPv6, UDP, or UDPv6.  
 -r Displays the routing table.  
 -s Displays per-protocol statistics. By default, statistics are  
 shown for IP, IPv6, ICMP, ICMPv6, TCP, TCPv6, UDP, and UDPv6;  
 the -p option may be used to specify a subset of the default.  
 interval Redisplays selected statistics, pausing interval seconds  
 between each display. Press CTRL+C to stop redisplaying  
 statistics. If omitted, netstat will print the current  
 configuration information once.   

Thanks chaps - I will check my security just in case.

Just thought it may be a new feature in 1.5 final, as it has never asked before… I wouldn’t mind Renoise connecting, but I would want to know what for!

Was only using Quadrasid VST @ the time (which is a legit copy). Maybe it checks for an update or something (but through Renoise? Weird)…

Monotron

it would not be that weird:
VST plugins are made to be run into other programs.

When you open a pluing into ReNoise, you basically call a DLL file, which executes a function whose name and parameters are set by design of VST specifications, while the rest is up to the plugin, which can do whatever it needs, even connecting to the net.
