When I copy something from the web and paste into Word my firewall comes up and asks to be connected to 72.???.??.??

I forget the true address, but if I do a whois through Sam Spade it comes back as Layered Technologies.

My question is should this happen and should I "allow" this to happen all the time?
Should this be blocked all the time?

Also it is extreamly slooooow to paste and also print through my print server and router in my local network. It takes like 2 minutes to go to the printer.

I would appreciate it if someone could help me fix or understand what is happening.

a couple of thoughts about this issue. when you copy and past from an html source into word, it retains a bunch of formating info. So big question is does it return with this same info any time you copy, even if your copying from yahoo.com?
