Cincinnerdi Tech Stuff

A mind-numbing read if ever there was one

VPN-So close yet no go

My lab nets were basically turned upside down and I even bypassed a router to put a PC directly on the net (yikes!), but it just didn’t work.Continued from yesterday, I worked on scanning my RR connection to see what would come through. Interesting findings, though. It lists many IPs all in the format:
nn.nn.nn.nn 153 ms aolclient-nn-nn-nn-nn.cinci.res.rr.com
Where “nn” is an IP address.
The IP has remained the same for over a year, but when I set the PC to be directly on the net (yikes!) the RR DHCP gave it a different IP as seen below. [Hmm. Later, when I reattached the router, it returned the original IP again!] The Ethereal packets are abridged.
Ethereal also displayed a large number of ARP requests (no replies) that take place constantly, almost as static. The display of redboot69, the RRAS server wannabe.
