R: What a strange route (The DoD inside)!



Fastweb is known to use IP addresses over their private networks without
really caring of the IANA specs. In past they used an IP class that has been
assigned to a north-african country, so I am not surprised at all of what I
am seeing here.

DoD Network Information Center <- Why?

Sometimes people just assign themselves some IP address space, not via
RIPE/ARIN/APNIC/etc, but just picking a address randomly. The range
26.26.26.xx looks like such an 'assignment'.

Of course, it's bad habit to just pick a random address and use it
inside your network, but it happens a lot, especially with rcf1918
space. It also happens a lot that those addresses can be seen by
tracerouting..

Hope this clears things up a bit,
Pieter


As Pieter said this ISP must be using DOD IP addresses on their internal
network. Unless they have a special link that transmits data directly from
Italy to Columbus, Ohio and back to Italy, in 1ms round trip. ^_^ I don't
think this could be associated with Dave's incident.

Regards,

Jean-Marc
