i was going to bother but its not my problem .. well it isnt anymore
the responce i got from TPG was unfortunate .. yer ..
so im not bothering , if you want to advertise 192.168.x.x numbers more power to you
and i hope your clients at the end of those Ips are safe
i love that the dell server there on 192.168.4.201 advertises it name rank and serial number gotta be
real secure to do that these days ..
well your local users i guess are the only ones effected eh .. so its safe
just keep telling yourself its safe .and all will be fine ..
have a super fun day and dont let the hamburgers get ya down
now lighten up
Who says nothing is impossible. I've been doing nothing for years
We appreciate your concern and for taking the time to respond.
The reason why we're trying to clarify as to where you found the advertisement is because 192.x.x.x IP addresses are local IP addresses. These are assigned by modems or routers to the devices connected to them. These are not the public IP addresses that we provide.
oh ok , so that the ip say at 192.168.4.201 an "idrac dell server" that is in sydney and
im in perth makes it private to err australia then ... not say just my local network
and to get there has to go though a few routes to get there and thats ok then
and the Ips that are up at say 192.168.183.xx are just local ips to me and not to anyone else
your very trusting giving me all that access ... to some 80 odd devices that i can see on the
192.168.x.x PRIVATE network
dont ask about the 10 network ..
sorry nuff said you protect your network however you feel is right ..
so why did it change sunday 14 july afternoon perth time
on ya go
We'd like to take a closer look on this concern you've raised. Would you be able to tell us as to where you found this IP address? You previously mentioned that this is being advertised, are you referring to an actual advertisement? Do you have a screenshot that you can send to us via PM?
the "where i found this address" is comical .. well to me ..
so I have a wemos (look it up) its default address is 192.168.4.1 they all are at this default addess new!
and so i looked .. and tested and checked and looked again
because it stopped working .. wasnt the wemos it was you afternoon of july 14 2019
If i mention that i ran and owned an ISP years ago would that help ?
so again .. here is a traceroute to the IP .. 192.168.4.201 from my windows computer
i dont have acl's for the private nework numbers in my router .. I shouldnt need to (im revising that )
you guys need to do that in your routers .. dont you think ...
as to the advertising bit .. advertising as in your network , not as in selling .. is that the question

Oh i forgot thats using my dns server .. no difference if i change back to yours
network name of the dell server at the end is "idrac-C4N7MP2"
screenshot .. well how about the servers web page screenshot ..that help ?
real pity the default logon and password has been changed ..
shall i mention again that nearly all the ips 192.168.4.x to 192.168.254.x are visable ( if they have something connected/discoverable that is )
here ya go ... ips 192.168.4.1 to 7 and 192.168.4.31 to 33 are live ips to me today
also at random ips 192.168.189.1 and 3 are also visible .. they appear to be in perth
bit scary that i cant use private numbers on my own network huh !
and if i do they arent private anymore -- yay for ip6
