What do I do if I have a local Proxy of 127.1.1.0 and a LOT if not all open connections go to cloud front?

Hello F-Secure Community,

 

I often say that if someone owns your connection they own you. Well, I first checked my opendns.com stats and it always shows up with one unique IP. That unique IP is 127.1.1.0 I KNOW that is the home IP address and I will always know it is the home IP address it however set to my proxy address. My problem is on my mac is that I have little snitch 3.5 and it shows me an outgoing connection from basically every program including one password. ESPECIALLY one password and this is a real issue going to Cloudfront from AMAZON. I did not realize that my entire internet and every website I visted is hosted by Cloudfront.net? I mean is the whole internet on Cloudfront.net? Does anyone else have this problem?

Please let me know and reply with any ideas. I have a lot of ideas but NO CLEAR actions. I am tired and it is the holidays and I thought all this trouble was over. That it was finished with the help of F-Secure.

 

Please help with any suggestions,

Rich Walston

No Chrissy but Thank you for asking and Happy New Years:). I am trying to find an F-Secure approved or based Unified Threat Management solution. The reason being is the that I believe now it is time to lock down the Network. I definitely need something with strong IPS in that unit for sure. Thanks. If Mikko knows of Anything they have in the works hardware wise. I would love to be there first Apha or Beta testers for such a unit. Thanks, Rich

I guess community and F-Secure peeps that I am doing the Beta testing of F-Secure FS Protection for Macintosh right now. I will see what I can do to troubleshoot these problems but I think this will be one heck of a learning experience. I think though my only choice is going to be moving on to a UTM or a unified threa management solution. Then ending this post on that note. If anyone can reccomend a good company ESPECIALLY in EUROPE please post or Private message me. I could really use one. 

 

Thanks,

Rich

I know exactly what is going on and how it is done. It is beyond software intervention. There is only one way to fix this. It is a hardware solution. I thought about just saying F it but there is always many answers to a problem.
