I noticed in Peerblock there was a large amount of packet traffic being sent to 220.127.116.11 from my Hamachi IP (25.127.xxx.xxx)
This is mystifying to me, because 18.104.22.168 is registered with the UK Ministry of Defense.
I opened up Wireshark to see just what exactly was going on. Every 30 seconds my Dropbox LAN Sync packets were getting sent to the 22.214.171.124 address through my Hamachi IP. No idea whats going on there, and I posted on the Dropbox Bugs/Troubleshooting to see if they have any clues.
The other packets going through were NetBIOS packets. Its a little disconcerting to me that all that NetBIOS information was just sent to some random UK Ministry of Defense IP.
Why is this happening? Answers?
Should I put on my tinfoil hat and be worried about this, or this a perfectly logical explanation?
I agree that this caught my attention this evening when I noticed Peerblock suddenly lighting up light a Christmas tree. I use Peerblock, Hamachi, and Dropbox so I haven't decided what the cause for alarm is and am unsure if the British government is monitoring me because I recently watched a 20 year old BBC sitcom online from a less than scrupulous source. I've put more time into this tonight than I care to admit, but I'm glad I at least stumbled upon this post. I'm looking for any info that will confirm that Hamachi took over the IP block that used to be used by DINSA.
The problem appears to be that Logmein doesn't actually have it's own block opf IPv4 addresses to hand out so has effectively been squatting on addresses they don't own.
Previously there were using the 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52 block but when when addresses started being assigned out to real network Logmein went looking for a new set of addresses, but bizarrely they appear to have decided to use 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11 which belongs to the UK MOD.
I suspect the UK MOD aren't likely to take too kindly to this and considering they are nuclear armed, they could be pretty persuasive :)
Personally until Logmein can get access to an IPv4 netblock they actually have permission to use I'd only use Hamachi with IPv6 addresses.
Wow. I just spent a week trying to figure out why my server wasn't able to ping (or do anything important) over Hamachi using IPv4. I was getting "General Failure" to ping responses. The 18.104.22.168 through 22.214.171.124 IP range is on the Bluetack level 1 blocklist.
