dragonsbreath.services.quay.plus.net

Could someone tell me if this is an actual plusnet thingy (ping??) - and what it is as my firewall software picks it up every 10 minutes or so?

thanks

I have just checked my firewall logs for the last 2 days and that ip doesn't show up once.
Are you running a p2p program?

I think it belongs to a +net user not +net itself.

It is one of our servers, the RADIUS stop packets that we recieve from BT to say your session has ended sometimes arnt correct so your session stays open, this way we can ensure they are closed when you disconnect.
