No, of course not. Daemons don't make outgoing connections on the whole
(they tend to be servers rather than clients), and even if they did, there's
simply nothing for it to connect /to/ at the ISP end. Consider an
equivalent question, generated from your own by text substitution:

Does that make it any clearer?
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
