[SOLVED] ifconfig.me - tekknik - 03-15-2016 02:25 AM

Out of curiosity, why does the client attempt to contact ifconfig.me?

Hi,

That's to get your external IP address (check the Network tab). There's a pool of ifconfig.me and whatpulse.org and the client checks them on startup randomly (either one of the other).
