Odd IP address - strange format
March 27, 2010 07:27AM
This one:

[fe80::3838:3e62:a9e8:f95e]:133

Can anyone shed any light on this? It shows as an unknown protocol with the destination ff02::2, and was allowed by Peerblock.

Thanks, everyone...

That's an IPv6 address.

The fe80::3838:3e62:a9e8:f95e is your machines IP anda dn doing a search for ff02::2, it might be your router.

Thanks, night stalker z - It all makes sense now....

Now I've told everyone my current IP address, I guess I should reboot my router (sigh!)... :-)

I must get round to looking at IPV6. I currently have it disabled whilst I am trying to sort out the horrible connection problems I am getting with Windoze 7.

Do you know if there is a program like 'Who is View' that does lookups for IPv6? I think Who Is View doesn't - or at least, my version doesn't...
