I have an ADSL modem that allocates IP numbers by DHCP to machines in
my LAN including 192.168.0.3
Each machine is told to use my ISP nameservers
when i connect from that machine 192.168.0.3 inside my home LAN, it
is identified (for example when running who on the other machine) as
www.irun.net.au. which according to whois, belongs to my ISP.
jim-watsons-computer:~ jim$ ping www.irun.net.au
PING www.irun.net.au (192.168.0.3): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 192.168.0.3: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.720 ms
If i ping www.irun.net.au from the host (192.168.0.3) then it pings
itself, i think?
PING www.irun.net.au (192.168.0.3) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.0.3: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.173 ms
external pings take much longer :p
jim-watsons-computer:~ jim$ ping www.netspeed.com.au
PING www.netspeed.com.au (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=0 ttl=125 time=11.429 ms
Is that something wrong in my side, or at the ISP? This is a
nuisance, but is it a problem too?
