Why does Autopsy require internet access?

Postby mindsasone » Thu Sep 15, 2016 1:27 am

I chose an open source toolkit for safety and security of my recovered data, but I am suspicious of any program that demands internet access. Anyone know why it will not run without this? (Tried running it on a computer not on network,, and it would not start due to lack of access)

I suspect that I hit similar issue.
After I have installed Autopsy 4.3 and disconnected from Internet, then run new case but Autopsy hung after a while in the middle of ingesting files.
Does Internet access a prerequisite or do I misinterpret anything here?
