Networking in PyCharm

PyCharm requires Internet connection for a wide variety of tasks. For example:

Besides that, PyCharm provides IPC for commands (for example, open files), and the built-in Web server.

Some of the communication requirements are configurable:

  • Checking for updates can be turned off. To disable checking for updates, open the page Settings | Updates, and clear the check box Check for updates in channel.
  • To disable code inspection that highlights dead links, open the page Settings | Inspections, and clear the check box to the left of the HTML inspection Non-existent web resources.
  • You can control the frequency of sending usage statistics, or even completely disable this function in the page Settings | Usage statistics.
