I got some answers from the team in Hungary and apparently the software is _in_deed_ automatically
sending the packets to the server over there ! The 'offline' sign in the lower left corner has nothing
to do with it:

> Hi Andreas,

> Thanks for the packets!

Well there you go. Sent them 560 packets and didn't even know it :) And in another email:

> Dear Andy,

Still doesn't explain why the 'Server side logging' checkbox is unchecked _and_ grayed out. But I guess its all research software very much under development.
