comment Find out what Linux software is trying to phone home
This will only work if you can catch the connection while it's up, i.e. only if the connection lasts sufficiently long. There's no such thing as “stop the iptables process”: iptables is the program that changes the settings, not a program that filters traffic; you mean switching the firewall to not block these connections, which doesn't require switching it to being wide open.
