    All my devices talk port 9000 outbound to Amazon AWS servers??

    Hi,

    I did a stronger outgoing firewall policy yesterday.
    Since then I noticed all of my Squeezebox devices (Radio and SqueezePlay) want to talk to 5 Amazon AWS Servers in Ireland over Port 9000:
    46.137.90.12
    79.125.18.68
    79.125.18.91
    176.34.103.98
    79.125.111.32

    Strangely, my LMS 7.8.0 is not talking to those servers, only the players.
    I do not use mysqueezebox.com, its not configured on the LMS.

    Regards
    Edmund

    There is a plugin called Amazon Store, or so. Maybe you only have to deactivate it.

    This plugin was already deactivated. Amazon AWS is providing cloud computing, not a store.

    Speculation . Can it be part of the setup code still polling in with mysqueezebox.com awaiting the setup to complete ?

    You probably skipped the part of the setup where you create or give email details about your account .

    If any of the players are used they may still talk to thier old accounts .

    Also I don't know if mysqueezebox.com provides any kind of menus or service even to unregistered players ?

    Some radio station icons (e.g. BBC ) used to be stored on Amazon AWS servers.

    Might be, but wouldn't they download via normal http ports 80/443? Why port 9000?

    I'll have a look and see if icons are missing.

    OK - forgot about the port 9000.

    If the players are Touch and radio (possibly other Squeezeplay players) - IIRC the menu first icons are down loaded from a LMS server and Touch and Radio. LMS and possibly mysqueezebox.com may also be requested to resize cover art/radio station logo etc. rather make a low powered device do it. Enable logging on these player to check.

    Artwork resizing? Unless you are using LMS 7.8 or newer all remote artwork is resized on MySqueezebox.com.
    Then there is radio. Whether you configure a MySB account or not, pre-7.8 (and even with newer LMS version unless you explicitly configured them differently) all radio functionality will still be provided by MySB.
    The Radio also might check whether you configured an account for it.

    Amazon AWS is a web hosting service used by lots of companies that need high bandwidth web hosting, including Logitech.

    If you ping mysqueezebox.com, you'll see an IP address that belongs amazonaws.com. It's a different IP each time, due to load balancing.

    Your players are just contacting the mysqueezebox.com servers.

    That's correct. And as you can see from the multiple IP address it's a
    cluster of servers, and some load-balancing is done at the DNS level.

    mysqueezebox.com is being used for artwork resizing, internet radio, and
    probably to get some of the other menus, too.
