    Intel ProSet/Wireless Zero Configuration Service Calling-Home?

    afl-tech

      Has anyone encountered the ZeroConfigService or "Intel ProSet/Wireless Zero Configuration Service" calling home to an outside Internet site on a frequent basis?

       

      Any idea or explanation as to what this 'call home' or outbound connection is for?

       

      Outbound Protocol: TCP/443 HTTPS

      Destination Host: dapi.ds-intel.net

      HTTP User Agent: Devicescape-Agent/2.0.999

       

      The domain name ds-intel.net seems to be registered privately with Network Solutions on behalf of a company called DeviceScape

       

      Is this part of the "Smart Connect" functionality mentioned below?
