Hello,

I have little snitch installed and every time I resume my macbook pro gs-loc.apple.com on port 443 wants to connect. I'm thinking it's to find your location so that iCloud can display it. the exec is called locationd. I pretty sure that my guess is right. I just wanted to see what the community thought.

Thanks for the replies,
Throdne
