Bizarre Issue - i just dont get it!!??
Iím in a bizarre situation that I can only attribute to a security breach. Here is whatís going on.I use Microsoft RRAS to VPN into my office LAN from home. My IP scheme behind my firewall is 10.0.32.xx static and for DHCP for RRAS clients which is 10.0.40.xx.
So, Im in my VPN and I try to remote desktop one of my web servers and it will not respond. I go to ping it and it responds back an odd IP Iíve never seen before. Instead of responding back with 10.0.32.xx I get 22.214.171.124 !!! What is this??!! Ive never seen this IP before. There is a NAT rule in my firewall because this is a web server but I check the firewall and the NAT is fine. I also checked the server and the binding and the internal IP is fine. I checked DNS Ė all OK. I ran a virus and spyware scan and the server is CLEAN.
The NAT rule for this server is 75.127.224.xxx to 10.0.32.xx.
So, where in hell is 126.96.36.199 coming from???
Im stumped.. i really need help here.
