what is the purpose of curl.exe ?

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the latest version of eddie (2.15.2) on windows, the portable version. everything seems to be working fine connected to a server in the netherlands but comodo says that curl.exe in the eddie folder is trying to connect to various ips on port 80. eg.

 

52.48.66.85

54.225.156.17

 

both belonging to amazon, why is this?

Hello!

You see connections to the bootstrap servers which are essential to Eddie to create the configuration according to your preferences at the same time saving you the need to download manually certificates, keys, configuration files etc. Eddie also downloads other info for your comfort (servers list and status, for example).

 

cURL is a tool for HTTP(S) communications which is used by Eddie with this purpose. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CURL

 

Kind regards

Hello!

 

It's a good choice to have flexible and always up bootstrap servers. Bootstrap servers just pass encrypted data through, they do not store anything, but if they are all down Eddie will not work. So the priority is having several machines which can be duplicated on different addresses in a matter of seconds inside an infrastructure which is hard to black list as a whole.

 

Kind regards
