I've noticed that everytime I connect to the internet, svchost.exe
makes a connection to my own IP address...
I'm not on a LAN or anything like that, just a single PC accessing the
internet. The IP address that shows up when I go to www.whatismyip.com
is the same one svchost connects to everyime I connect.
I also see explorer.exe making a connection to the same IP, again
whenever I first connect to the internet.
Is this normal?
