A user’s machine is being chatty with IP 199.27.105.111., it looks like this IP is associated with rgbcolo.rgbnetworks.com,  or www.layer42.net  or possibly  amazon cloud player. Any thoughts would be great.
Thanks folks

I suggest you get a copy of Wireshark. Put it on a machine on the same subnet as the problem machine. See if you can see in the packets:

1. Excessive packets.
2. Undesirable traffic in the packets. You should be able to see packet contents. I use CommView for this.

It is a very detailed analysis and not always fruitful.

If the site is not in compliance with your company guidelines, have the employee's manager discuss the issue and ask the employee to stop.
