Volumio Polling External IP???


Not sure if I should be concerned or not, or for that matter if this is the correct location to post this.

For time to time, my IPS/IDS picks up that my Volumio instance is polling an external IP address across lots of different ports. The source is my internal IP but the target is:

A “Whois” identifies Digital Ocean - this is a known hosting service, and good one at that.

But I wonder if anyone can suggest/advise if this could be a problem or is just an occurrence where the Volumio instance has lost connection with it’s “mother-ship” service controller and trying to “phone home” using different ports?

Thanks in advance.


Hi, this is a Volumio server which handles a part of the update system. So, don’t worry, everything is fine.

Thought so. Thanks for confirming.
