    Hi All,

    I connected my phone to the corporate wifi today, and I immediately got a nasty note from IT saying the IP assigned to my iPhone has hit the threshold for proxy avoidance.

    The automated message says:
    Code:
    User name: 
    User IP address: [removed]
    Threshold (in visits): 20
    Category: Proxy Avoidance
    Action: Blocked
    
    --Most recent request--
    URL: HTTPS://64.151.124.5:443
    IP address: 64.151.124.5
    Port: 443
    
    I did a search on the IP, and the only thing I can find is list of proxy servers. Why would my phone be communicating with this IP? Could this be due to some rogue app installed via Jailbreak? I can't reconnect the phone until I get this resolved, so I will test this out at home but I'm not sure how I will be able to monitor if it is still hitting the IP. Looks like a restore is in my immediate future to be safe.

    Not so much. 443 is what https:// uses.

    Port is SSL. Some IMAP uses it for secure email.

    My first thought was that it had to be my gmail over imap, but the ip isn't owned by google.
