Drobo

Dashboard Talking to Remote Server?

I was debugging some weird dashboard behavior and when I did:
lsof -c Drobo
I noticed:
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
Drobo\x20 137 foobar 9u IPv4 0x3b3c66c 0t0 TCP zinc.foobar.com:49160->98-129-239-68.static.cloud-ips.com:ftp (CLOSED)

(foobar is a replacement for the real domain)

PID 137 corresponds to the Dashboard:
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD
501 137 107 0 0:04.32 ?? 1:39.81 /Applications/Drobo Dashboard.app/Contents/MacOS/Drobo Dashboard -psn_0_73746

Anyone know why the Dashboard would be talking to cloud-ips.com via FTP?

TIA.

(I mistakenly posted this to the “Drobo” Forum.)

98-129-239-68.static.cloud-ips.com seems to get me to the drobo website in the browser. Perhaps it was sending stats to Drobo?

hmm what if you do a “netstat -a” from the command prompt (if in windows)?
