    For some reason my Moountain Lion continually tries to connect to 17.x.x.x. It is not trying to get updates as I have it turned off. This connection is encrypted.

    Eliminated



    1) Updates I have turned off automatic updates and updates can only performed manually.

    2) Time and DNS are easily identified and are not encrypted. DNS should not be going to Apple in any case as that is a specfic network setting.

    3) Xprotect is a malware incoroprated into the OS and the TSL encrypted infomration I am view is occurring ever few minutes I would say at least every 5 minutes. There is no way Xprotect is expecting updates that often.

    4) I do not use Safari so that application is not running


    why is there encrypted traffic going to Apples network?

    Just because you don't use iCloud, doesn't mean Mac OS X doesn't connect to Apple's iCloud servers.
