I am in the process of developing a ClickOnce application using VB.NET 2005.  The last time I
updated the application and then tried to run it via ClickOnce my firewall complained that dfsvc.exe
was trying to access 208.111.129.173 which is cds832.lga.llnw.net and is part of Limelight Networks
LGA CDN Network.

What is it trying to server from the CDN site?  How can I determine the original source for the
material being served?
