Hi,
I found this IP address within our network.

0.251.167.100


Could someone explain to me what this means?  Do these numbers indicate anything noticeable?

Thanks.

Well it's not IPv6.  

Zero Addresses
the address range from 0.0.0.0 through 0.255.255.255 should not be considered part of the normal Class A range. 0.x.x.x addresses serve no particular function in IP, but nodes attempting to use them will be unable to communicate properly on the Internet.

that isnt IPv6, that is still IPv4. That looks like a class A public address, where is it on the network?

Not IPv6?  Then why am I getting this IDS alert?
