I asked a similar question in the Bear Hill webinar.  I had asked about
private IPs and how the request would be made to us, would it be an IP
or name, unfortunately it can be either one.  We would most likely need
to provide the data from that IP if that is how the request was made.
Now with a tap of a external IP of a private IP range, you would have to
provide the data from the inside of the network, so that they could
analyze it and determine what internal IP is the suspect.

I have only been working in this industry for a little under a year and
I have been amazed at the use of private IPs for customers.  We have
them setup here, in my opinion it cause more trouble than its worth  I
hope to move away from private IPs over the next year.  They will still
exist in our network for networking devices, but ideally no more
customers would get them.
