Welcome to ask.fedora! Please note that as a new user, all of your posts are moderated, meaning that they won't show up until a moderator approves it; that means that if you repeat your post because it didn't show up, all that happens is that a moderator will reject the duplicate. (One of the forum rules is, "One question per issue," but there's no punishment involved.)

As for your question, nslookup reveals that the machine's canonical name is and whois shows that it's owned by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My guess is that it's the home to a mirror of one of the Fedora repositories, but I can't tell you why it's connecting to your computer over Port 80. Is the connection sending data, receiving it or both?

It's quite possible that this is being caused by some sort of package management systems looking for updates, but I'm not sure, right now, as to how to find out for sure.
