RRWE stands for Road Runner West....but I'm curious to know the IP address to see which list contains it.

Let me know.

Started getting it as well, along with Time Warner Telcom...odd because I don't use Time Warner or Road Runner service....

Road Runner RRWE - coming from multiple IPs

72.130.231.193
217.173.198.237
72.129.74.48
72.130.14.229


Any info updates appreciated

You search the IP address and which lists contain them here -> [iblocklist.com]

Also check which port the IP address is attempting to use. Could be a known port (such as email, http, etc).

The IP address listed as the "source" for me (and I suspect you as well) is your own IP address, I bet if you go to whatismyip.com you will see that 72.130.xxx.xx is your IP from Time Warner. For me the source is always my IP on port 1901 and the Destination is always 239.255.255.250 on port 1900. I think it may have to do with UPnP being enabled on our routers as those ports (from what I understand) have to do with just that issue. I am concerned either way. Are they monitoring us? I can confirm that this only happens while Actively downloading on a Torrent, if you have your Torrent Client open with no actives (even if they are paused or stopped) you will not get hit. Also I run through an SSHTunnel service which should negate direct connections with the other Peers and it still happens, which makes me think they are just fishing for all traffic on the appropriate BitTorrent ports. I don't have a good feeling about this one.....

An update here guys, while I am not sure what Road Runner is up to, I have found a way to block this and I am no longer seeing blocked hits on my Peer Block from Road Runner RRWE. First I tried disabling UPnP (which I cannot do with my router) so I did it in Windows only, but still got the hits. I finally just blocked ports 1900 and 1901 on my Router and am no longer getting these hits. From what I understand this has to do with UPnP, once I blocked those 2 ports the hits stop. Perhaps you should do the same too.

239.255.255.250 is a broadcast address to announce the presence of a machine on the network. Its related to UPnP. I wouldn't recommend blocking those ports.

239.255.255.250 blocks are generally a sign of improper use of a Bogon or iana-reserved list.  These lists can cause all sorts of problems with you local network if you're not careful about setting up allow-ranges on top of them...  Generally speaking though, setting up the iana-multicast list as an "Allow List" should help prevent these problem from occurring, and is recommended if you're using e.g. a Bogon list.
