Possible Hacker 229.111.112.12

Hi guys!
I have this IP that is trying to connect to my SQL server...  229.111.112.12.  I'm unable to resolve it.  Who is it, which provider is giving this IP.  Is there a way to trace that IP?

Thanks!

Er, are you sure this isn't just a multicast address?  Some device internal to your network?  229/8 is usually listed as a Multicast, IIRC.

Wow...  I feel like an idiot...  You are right; this is internal to our network

Thanks

added: We see this as a raid controller admin page on our IBM systems. The application listens for IBM servers to communicate to this multicast address. Whoever joins it will be reported to the application for management and reporting.
