    Hello. I was just veryfying some port configurations using netstat. But then I came upon the following connections:

    cuquita:~ jmunoz$ netstat -a | grep ipulse
    tcp4 0 0 cuquita.local.ipulse-i cuquita.local.49159 ESTABLISHED
    tcp4 0 0 cuquita.local.49159 cuquita.local.ipulse-i ESTABLISHED
    tcp4 0 0 cuquita.local.ipulse-i cuquita.local.49158 ESTABLISHED
    tcp4 0 0 cuquita.local.49158 cuquita.local.ipulse-i ESTABLISHED
    tcp4 0 0 cuquita.local.ipulse-i cuquita.local.49157 ESTABLISHED
    tcp4 0 0 cuquita.local.49157 cuquita.local.ipulse-i ESTABLISHED
    tcp4 0 0 *.ipulse-ics *.* LISTEN


    These ipulse-ics connections are on port 20222 I don't remember having seen these before.

    I did a Google Search on this, but found nothing particularly interesting nor helpful.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Thank you!
    :confused:


    EDIT: I found some notes talking about OpenBase. I remember that name from when I installed the Tiger Dev Tools. But, why is this open? Should I shut it down? How?

    Right, it's part of the WebObjects kit. The ports are for the development database server.

    Oh yeah, about security: You can launch Applications:OpenBase:OpenBaseManager, and from the Manu pick OpenBaseManager->Local Preferences->Local Host Settings... In there, you can uncheck Network Access Allowed, and also set passwords if you like.
