    Odd IP Address
    « on: January 12, 2007, 12:12:18 PM »
    Is anyone familiar with IP's that have 0. in the first trinome. Found this IP 0.24.23.250 in my router log. Not traceable or pingable. Who or what uses such IP's?
    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

      I would say that the second report is void.

      Its probably your ISP, which appears to be Comcast.

        Nope! Not my ISP. I use DSL, not cable. I will look up the RFC though.
        At this point I think it IP aliasing but I'm not sure. It only shows up in the incoming log, never in the outgoing.
        If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

        If it's not in the outgoing chances are it is aliasing...

        Well, the IP address without a zero may also be just the random IP of a Comcast customer as well. So who knows, perhaps its a personal server running off a Comcast ISP?

        Script kiddies.  (Spoofed IP addresses.)
