64.4 is registered to Microsoft for hotmail. Are you sure it's a Condor
process making this connection, and are you sure nothing at your university
never connects to Hotmail?
If you could send us a bit more information, we'd much appreciate it.
If you could send to condor-admin@xxxxxxxxxxx the following information:
1. The full IP that's being contacted
2. The name of the process that has the connection open
3. If you disable Condor, does this connection go away?
4. The exact filename of the Condor installer you downloaded.
