Hi ! So it goes like this: I was chillin’ at home watchin’ a movie stream over the internet on some site. I watched like 3 or 4 hours (two or three movies) and suddenly the movie/connection started laggin’ and I see in my firefox lower bar somethin’ like “connecting to ping.chartbeat.net” and “transfering data to ping.chartbeat.net”. I’ve opened CIS and got a look at my firewall events and I saw that firefox connected to multiple addresses with data transfer occuring. My firewall is set to “Custom policy mode” and firefox is treated as a web browser.
I’ve tried disconnecting and connecting again so my ip would change, cleaned the garbage from my explorer and firefox browsers but still the same. Then I took like a 30 min. break and got back to CIS panel and set firefox to custom policy and when connected I pressed the OK button many times until I got connected to the site again and the stream was working with no problem again but after a half an hour or so the problem came back… same “connecting to ping.chartbeat.net” thing but this time my CIS firewall started to ask me about firefox connecting to some address… I really don’t have a clue… it is like I was under constant attack or my connection dropping… Could my provider be the problem ???.. I have unlimited traffic subscription…
Oh, and I have BlockSite addon to my firefox and I’ve put that address there to be blocked but no go… it still shows up in the firefox lower bar.
P.S. Sorry for the long post and I will wait for any advice or idea about this !
P.P.S. I’ve searched on google but is all bogus, never got an idea about this !
