when I trace route to the server it ends up at the server.
which may well be YaBB forums, it serves the first site in the config file that comes up when no name is specified. (httpd.conf)
is a class A private network address.
10.0.0.1 through to 10.255.255.254 are reserved for private networks,
just like the ranges
172.16.x.x -> 172.32.x.x (class B private)
and 192.168.x.x (class C private)
those addresses won't route on the internet at all. cause they are private black hole addresses.
perhaps I just don't get what you are saying.
