Iv'e been diagnosing a QuickBooks Enterprise 12 Company File size issues and it locking up when trying to run reports, or anything like that.

Upon monitoring my network connection (I was actually checking on something else and caught it out the corner of my eye), while trying to run a report I noticed something strange.

A simple is for those two IPs lead to:

[CODE]

Ok, so a cloud center - sure I get that with the data protect (even though it's not enabled on this company file and has never been so).

The second is another lead to something called AppNexus

[/code]

So why is AppNexus so interesting to me? Well, because my information is GOING OUT to AppNexus while running a report in QuickBooks. I can find NO mention of AppNexus anywhere on Intuits website (or even google for that matter).

Anyone else find this funny or am I being over paranoid at this point? I've got concerns with a thirdparty being involved in my or my client's companies financial books.

AppNexus appear to be an advertising company. Most likely taking anonymous statistical data. I would assume it was ticked in the installation. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I would assume you could disable it from the preferences?
