External http requests (2 posts)

    Can someone please help me out with identifying all external http or https requests made from a wordpress install.

    My webhost is changing some firewall rules to block external requests from hosted sites and I don't want to lose any functionality.

    Obviously any content I post that embeds images or videos is affected, but I'm most interested in things like the WordPress announcements in the Admin area, any remotely hosted code, js or css and/or images etc.

    A quick poll of the install files brings up the following,

    http://wordpress.org/
    http://codex.wordpress.org/
    http://planet.wordpress.org/
    http://feeds.technorati.com/
    http://www.w3.org/ ?

    and (some) plugins using,

    http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/
    http://tinymce.moxiecode.cp/
    http://sourceforge.net/
    http://akismet.com/
    http://ws.arin.net/
    http://push.cx/

    Anything else? Any help here would be appreciated.

    Obviously if the host isn't willing to provide a workaround I'll be jumping shiop real fast!

    Regards, Chris.

    I should add that the reason I need to identify external requests is so I can pass on a list to my host provider that will be added to a "permitted" list.

    Of course the major drawback here is that the whole trackback/ping functionality will be permanently broken (unless by chance I blog and link to a site that has been previously approved)

    The more I look into this change the more I think I'll be ditching my host provider and moving the site...
