pia_openvpn_client incoming connection on port 49222

Occasionally little snitch will block an incoming UDP connection from the pia_openvpn_client executable on port 49222. What is the purpose of this connection?

    Hey @Nylo

    IP works with source IP+port -> destination IP+port, so in order to talk to PIA you have to pick a source port — which the OS does automatically at random. When the server replies or sends data to the client, it comes back to that port.

    This sounds like it's just whatever port was automatically picked to communicate.

    I do not think this is anything to worry about :)
