Is WF Pro connecting to the Web even though I use it without online services?

Hi, I am using WF Pro 5.6.0 on a Mac.

I do not use shared TMs, and I have Google Translator, Microsoft Translator and WorldLingo turned off.

Why does the log in my hidden .gs4tr.editor folder show the following?

[org.gs4tr.editor.webserver.servlets.DispatcherServlet][MY USER NAME][]

WFP5 is based on Java and chromium code so you can have the same application online or on your desktop. Java and chromium need a locally-hosted web server on the desktop version to run. This web server is not connected to the internet. It is basically a self-contained network. Your OS has the same thing.

The only time WFP5 connects to the internet (besides remote TMs & glossaries or MT engines) is for licensing and to check for updates.
