Re: Strange trace to netsol...
Well, if you try to go directly to the IP address, it takes a long trip on the UUnet network to the "REAL" 220.127.116.11. 6 180.at-6-0-0.XR1.CMH2.ALTER.NET (18.104.22.168)  3.670 ms 3.747 ms 5.977 ms 7 189.at-1-1-0.TR1.CHI4.ALTER.NET (22.214.171.124)  14.291 ms 14.748 ms 14.497 ms 8 106.at-6-1-0.TR1.LAX9.ALTER.NET (126.96.36.199)  68.313 ms 68.335 ms 68.843 ms 9 0.so-0-0-0.XR1.LAX9.ALTER.NET (188.8.131.52)  75.470 ms 79.128 ms 67.845 ms 10 191.at-3-1-0.HR2.LAX9.ALTER.NET (184.108.40.206)  68.275 ms 68.263 ms 68.353 ms 11 112.ATM3-0.DR4.LAX3.ALTER.NET (220.127.116.11)  70.499 ms 71.405 ms 70.741 ms 12 tnt36.lax3.da.uu.net (18.104.22.168)  73.373 ms !H 73.859 ms I'm nearly certain that it's a config typo inside Winstar where they hijacked (accidently?) some address space for use on p-t-p links between routers. The reply I'm seeing is simply sourced from 22.214.171.124 so, that is what shows up in the traceroute. This is something that could happen a lot if people don't take care when configuring devices. It will be hard to track inside the misconfigured network because, almost certainly, the address will be in the IGP so, traceroutes to that address from inside Winstars net (and for people who default to winstar) will go to that address. This just showed up within the past few days. I've not seen that address in there in traces previoiusly. --- John Fraizer EnterZone, Inc On Thu, 9 Aug 2001, Peter Helmenstine wrote: > You provide two very good points that I didn't bother looking at.
