    Hello
    I see that my mac is making a lot of connections to hosts all ending with bz.push.apple.com:

    st11p01st-courier084-bz.push.apple.com
    st11p01st-courier085-bz.push.apple.com
    ...

    what are those apple servers and what is the process making those connections ? Is this iCloud ? I do have a iCloud account but I'm not logged in in Preferences.

    thanks,

    Looks like they're iMessage servers. I found this thread with a quick search of Google.

    But why is a mac querying iMessage servers ? Can I even send iMessages from a mac ?

    Only if you have the Messages Beta app installed, which apparently you do not... are you sure your iCloud syncing is completely disabled?

    When I go to Preferences/iCloud I get the login/password prompt so I suppose I am logged out.

    The traffic is still there and it's around 50 KB/s :(

    Strange is that it seems to be happening only when I'm at work behind a http proxy.
