Web Server wants to connect with Fortressitx

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I am using Comodo Internet Security Premium on a winxp machine with apache web server.
My web server has been up for 3 years.  Recently (within the last few months) I noticed that my server is constantly trying to contact IP  This is the address of Fortressitx.  I have tried to discover why....but to no avail.
I have blocked and logged the attempts.  I made a few changes to the server and rebooted.  My software firewall logged 24 attempts blocked within three minutes.  Usually the attempts are made every 3 hours.
Even with the block----things seem to be working OK.
