What does this mean: "SmartSDR Client Connected from IP"?

I keep getting the pop up notification "SmartSDR Client Connected from IP" every 5 seconds. What is causing this and what is it? I apologize if this is a simple question but I am not that much of a computer person. Thank you for your assistance.

73, Brian K9TI

    What do you have for any accessories with your Flex? A description of your station setup will help troubleshoot the message you are seeing

    I got the pop up from my Antenna Genius 2x8 switch every few seconds until I updated the firmware on the 2x8 switch.

    Hi Brian,

    Try checking the IP address of your Antenna Genius from the Antenna Genius for Windows program ->options wheel -> device information -> Network Information ->IP Address. If it matches the IP address in the pop up notification (i.e. a quick fix is to re-boot the Antenna Genius switch from the AG for Windows program -> Options wheel -> configure device -> reboot device.

    I noticed the recurring pop up starts happening if I start using SmartSDR and AG after Windows has been in screen saver mode.
