    Question another web question - background connections

    Hi,

    ok I got 'Little Snitch' running to let me know what goes on behind the scenes on my Mac - it highlights any unseen 'connections' that happen betwixt computer and web etc.

    It's interesting to see how it connects to streaming and 'marketing' links but annoying when you have to approve simple dashboard updates.

    Anyhoo, I'm now getting a connect prompt to something like...

    ......ocsp.verisign.com

    I forbid the connection as I have no idea what it's for - it doesn't effect owt. It looks like a bank type thing!

    Any ideas what it is for before I donate my wealth to a Foreign Prince?

    cheers

    It's trying to pull a security certificate back from Verisign to prove that the site you are on is genuine.

    You ought to allow it so that it can confirm sites for you

    Was there any particular site you were on that was trying that connection ?
    Meep Meep.
