Thread: IP Address 164.254.0.0

    Default IP Address 164.254.0.0

    I just upgraded to ZASS 8.0.059.000 and looked at my Firewall Zones.
    Back in Version 7 only my internet provider and the loopback adaptor address was shown.
    Now there are four server addresses plus my Internet provider plus IP Address 164.254.0.0.
    What is that latter address.
    Is it an Internet address. I have a Bluetooth network operating.
    Is it that network?
    I named it "Unknown" and classified it as "Internet."
    Should it be "Trusted?"
    The Bluetooth network still works passing sound from my PC to two external bluetooth speakers.
    Thus, classifying it as "Internet" doesn't seem to be doing an harm.
    Thanks in advance for any help you can render.

    use find to see it well described here
    http://www.iana.org/abuse/faq.html

    It's when you can't get IP address from your ISP or the router, as in the cable is out
    Not unsafe, but you can keep it internet. No IP, no communication possible really.
    169.x.x.x can be several variants of numbers, as the IANA ref will show.

    It could be that ZA is keeping the entire list that happened to you.

    Thanks for that information.
    It does not specifically address IP 164.254.0.0.
    I do have a Bluetooth network going to my speakers from my PC.
    Could it be that network?
    I also play a game called, "Mankind," which is played on the game's servers.
    Could it be that one as well?
    Thanks again.

    I think I need new glasses
    I'm sorry, I totally misread the number.

    Here is the info on the network:

    DoD ?

    Here's another from

    I made a mistake as well.
    The address should have been: 169 . 254 . 0
    .0.
    I went to your recommended site and got this:
    Hostname: 169 . 254 . 0 . 0 ISP: Organization: Proxy: None detected Type: Unknown
    Now I am really at a loss.
    I checked further on Google and found it is a Private IP Address assigned by Windows if the network connection is cut.
    I did have a crash playing a game, "Mankind," on the internet.
    Thus, it was assigned.
    Is there anyway to get rid of it or should I just forget it?
    It doesn't do any harm.

    Relax, please!

    Ok, now that we both know we're dealing with 169.x.x.x, quoting my earlier reply:
    "It's when you can't get IP address from your ISP or the router, as in the cable is out
    Not unsafe, but you can keep it internet. No IP, no communication possible really.
    169.x.x.x can be several variants of numbers, as the IANA ref will show."

    You can keep it. You can delete it. It makes no difference.
    If internet connection is "cut" - your IP address is lost, thus becomes the 169.x.x.x thing as Windows can't get a new IP from the DHCP server. Windows simply assigns a dead-IP when it can't connect.

    Want to see proof? Pull your internet cable out. Wait a minute or so.
    Click Start, then type cmd and press Enter.
    Now on the black window type
    ipconfig /all
    and hit enter
    Look at the IP address - it'll be 169.x.x.x when the connection's gone.
    While normally it's something else.

    in addition to your sites zasuite user
    there is a site (that i lost the link to)that can trace a internet server just by the sets of numbers (like it will search the 169 give you another list and search the 254 which will give you another list and the you search the 0 which will normally give you the generic site and the list of subnets wich is that last 0 and on certain sites (not connections) it will tell you the site)
    now if you can find the site that i'm talking about i would be happy to know it again but in the mean time your probably right about it being an old internet connection that never got removed from za

    found the site
    http://www.domaintools.com/reverse-ip/explorer.html
    it can help you understand what each subnet number means in a ip address
    normally it only takes 3 to get a normal users domain

    I figured it out.
    I have a Bluetooth network for transmission of sound to my distant speakers.
    This Private IP address represents that network.
    I only have two networks: Cable and Bluetooth.
    The first is for the Internet and the Second is Trusted.
    It would make sense for a Private Network address to be utilized for local sound transmissions.
    The Private IP can never be used for the Internet.
    Thanks for all the information.
