Strange IP Address Showing in Monitor/SCN Network Status

Strange IP Address Showing in Monitor/SCN Network Status

Strange IP Address Showing in Monitor/SCN Network Status

IP500v2 on

I'm seeing an odd/unknown IP address in my list of SCN sites in the SCN Network Status app that is run from within SysMonitor.

The address is I saw another thread here referencing this but nobody really answered it and it's closed. Can anyone tell me why I would see an address like that when it has nothing to do with my system at all? I've added a static route on the IPO so it can't possibly route traffic to that network. I've checked the traffic through the firewall and everything I can think of but that address doesn't show up anywhere so I'm assuming it's something cosmetic but it's awfully worrying to see something like that and have no explanation.

The only reference I've seen to that specific address is in a devconnect note. The IP addy is part of the SNMP OID string. I know.. it's not the same thing. I'm mentioning it anyways. https://www.devconnectprogram.com/fileMedia/downlo...

Otherwise there is no way that IP address is actually communicating with any of my systems because I went full paranoia and added a specific block to all the firewalls for that IP in any direction on any interface.

Any help is appreciated.

That's a Japanese IP....

do you have any IP trunks connecting to Japan? Remote phones?

Do you see it in SSA?

It sometimes shows different addresses, they don't always show up though. It has to be some vagary or bug because there is absolutely no way anything with those addresses can connect to any of the IPO's in my networks. I've verified that. I don't even have a default gateway on them. I just have a route for the supernet they all share so they can't even route to those odd addresses. It's just annoying that it's showing those addresses.
