I also have a Logitech webcam...and I always elect to not allow such connection to be made or connect to the Internet.

From description of Logitech QuickCam: "Note: Video e-mail, video calls, instant messaging and videoconferencing require Internet connection." I'm guessing that this connection is for facilitation of these functions. Since I don't engage in any of those, I don't need the connection.

I do not show this connection existing on my system, but I do remember being asked about it, either by my firewall or by the software used to install the webcam.

Well...if I wanted to remove it, I suppose I'd remove the webcam and software...reboot...and install it again, noting carefully for any indication that Logitech wants to configure this.

Another option would be look closely at the current configuration options and see if if can be negated.

If you use any of the functions I mentioned pertaining to possible use of this, then leave it as is.

I would also visit the Logitech website FAQ/forums and see if there is more info.
