Why is my SWTOR launcher exe trying to contact University of New Hampsire? http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=249888 is the original thread, it quickly derails but Bioware at least responded to it. Can you say oops. I wonder how many other gems like this are running about in the code, could explain issues people bring up that other people never experience.
Due to the odd nature of this issue, one of our developers has asked us to post this on his behalf in order to clarify what is happening:
The network call in question is from a 3rd party library we use as part of our launching system. The call is intended to optimize the performance of a P2P feature of this library which we do not use and do not intend to use. Note that the call is to a public stun protocol server which is, in fact, hosted by the University of New Hampshire. A future update to our launcher will disable this completely.
We hope that answers your question!
