Hi Linux newbie here.
I am running RH 7.3 and I connect to the internet via aDSL connection on my eth0 card via a ppp connection. I get my IP address dynamically assigned by my provider. I am runnign the firewall from the HOW-To Masquarade
I have notced that everytime i establish a new connection i see this when
I do ifconfig for my ppp0 interface
the P-t-P address is an internal address and it never changes. I use to see all sorts of address there. I have also seen some odd network traffic and not sure its because of my 2 windows machines (backwep update agents..) or I might have been hacked or have some linux worm. I am NOT running a webserver, at least not knowingly...
if I do route i also see this address pop up as default instead of some long name like user-blahlblah.mindspring etc...
