I've been reading about Windows 10 and its incessant desire to call home. I've tried putting some firewall rules in place. I am sure they are working but I got to thinking that many events probably happen before my firewall kicks in.
What I'd like to do, if it is possible, is to get a list of IPs my stand-alone PC calls starting at boot time. I have WireShark - although not installed - and have been reading the manual but it is not clear yet what I have to do. I've tried playing around with my router (Netgear AC1450) but while I can turn on logging the router produces no logs.
So I have a ways to go in this learning curve. I've been playing around with Tails and that seems to work ok but then I realized I had the same question. With whom is my PC communicating with before I get control of the PC? I really get tired of everything I do on the internet becoming public property and have decided to learn enough about it that maybe I can stop or at least control the flood.
