The above traceroute snippet shows that on the 2'nd hop the gateway there has an internal ip address. This address is _not_ part of my LAN. I've tried port scanning the box and had no responses. Tried all ICMP type packets and have only gotten the address to respond to a traceroute technique.. by setting the TTL for exactly '2'. What I get back is a TTL time exceeded in transit packet (which is the common expected response). This is the only response I've been able to get from this machine. My question is... if this machine is not part of my LAN and it doesn't have a valid ip address that can be accessed from the WAN.. how am I seeing it @ the 2'nd hop? I was using the standard ICMP traceroute when I noticed this... I wasn't using UDP mode.
