My network administrator found out that my Mac is sending enormous amounts of push notifications.:

So that it about 8 per second, or almost 30,000 per hour.

So I was wondering if anyone knows how to stop this. It's a problem on port 5223, so it must be from one of these software: iCloud DAV Services (Contacts, Calenders, Bookmarks), APNS, Facetime, Game Centre, Photo stream, Back to my mac.

 

However, I have already turned off the iCloud services, and I am not using Facetime or Game Centre.

 

Also, I have already tried the advice on this blog (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3789#), but that didn't work either.

 

Thanks.
