VM.SE.LSOFT.COM is a central L-Soft server that collects publicly-available statistics and other information for the CataList service and for L-Soft's use in developing usage metrics. All of the commands sent by LVMON are documented and can be issued by any user. See also 5.7 of the Site Manager's Operations Manual for more information on inter-server information sharing.


If you absolutely, positively cannot approve of the idea of this information being sent out to a central server, then you must set your server to operate in STANDALONE runmode. See the documentation for the RUNMODE= site configuration keyword for more information. (Note: LISTSERV Lite Free Edition sites cannot change their runmode. On the other hand, the paid version of LISTSERV Lite does support the RUNMODE= keyword.)
