Hey all, I'm pretty sure my gut is right.  I was helping a friend out with his Office 2016 install.  

What struck me as strange was the reseller that the software was bought through, the vendor after his payment sent the downloads via uploadgig.com'

Next when we ran the activator, the following was the output.

===== Host:    == Auto Host == Port: 1688 =====
