need to find who owns IP address 208.51.212.88

Hi ,
I have noticed some remote connections to our firewall from 208.51.212.88
when I do a lookup I get different results ( depending which site I use)
but according to whois.urih.com it belongs to DoD since 1998

is there a site that you can refer me to so I can find out who / where this IP is located to ?

thanks.

208.51.212.88 does not respond to a page request and does not provide a domain name lookup.  And 'whois' looks up Domain names, not IP addresses.

What you are looking for can be obtained using "Curl" utility if can run up a Ubuntu box (if you don't have one already).
If you have a Ubuntu box try and you will find the owner;

$curl ipinfo.io/208.51.212.88
{
  "ip": "208.51.212.88",
  "hostname": "No Hostname",
  "city": null,
  "region": null,
  "country": "US",
  "loc": "38.0000,-97.0000",
  "org": "AS3549 Level 3 Communications, Inc."
}

Are you sure you typed in the correct IP address, 208.51.212.88,?

According to everything everybody has found that is owned by Level 3.  I even went to the site you quoted and it says Level 3.
