This is not necessarily wrong, I used to have a dialup account where connections within the UK would go often go to London, then go round a tour of Western Europe, and then come back through London. Although there probably is a fault in your case since you can't connect. > First, my DSL modems IP is 184.108.40.206, however, the default route > appears to be 220.127.116.11. I think Point-to-Point links just work like that, with arbitrary addresses on either end of the link. My address and gateway have only the first byte in common. > [/usr/home/andy] > -> traceroute -n 18.104.22.168 > traceroute to 22.214.171.124 (126.96.36.199), 64 hops max, 52 byte > packets 1 * * * > 2 188.8.131.52 40.303 ms * 39.421 ms > > Why on earth would there be delays on the first hop when not using > name resolution? I don't see what name resolution has to do with the delay, the 39ms is the round-trip time to the gateway at the ISP. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
