I know icculus.org coded the linux binaries for the ut servers. I set up the itables and opened the needed ports for kf. everything is working fine on the Server.
When i check my iptables.log I have many lines like this: The KF server is trying to connect to icculus.org. Why does he do this? Can i ignore it and let iptables keep blocking?
