Firewalled IP address?

A client of mine had a customer place an order on his website.  He always checks the IP Address of the orders.  This one showed a "PRIVATE IP ADDRESS LAN" and when I looked it up in Visual Route it was "firewalled".  The trace stopped after a few hops and showed a break in the line and actually said "Firewalled".

It did not show an ISP or anything.   How does one get a firewalled IP Adress like that?  I have a firewall installed but my IP still shows up when visiting sites.  This is a new one on me.

sorry but it's not very clear to me!? Private IPs are not routable on the Internet! The fact that is showing as "firewalled" is just how visualroute interpreteed it. In practice, it only means that icmp is being blocked, somewhere along the route; it could also mean that there is no route and therefore, packtes are timing out.

Does tis answer your question? if Not, can you be more specifci?
