218.13.212.231

Recommended Posts

I received several warning bubbles today and yesterday with this IP address at frequent intervals. I wondered what I had done recently as when I first installed 1.40 there was no problem. I realized I had been using the OpenDNS name servers (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220). I replaced them a few hours ago and the problem has disappeared. At the time of the warnings I had Firefox open but was not browsing. I was however running uTorrent. A scheduled scan run after I replaced the server addresses revealed no problem.

Please read this FAQ about the new IP protection. ;)

Thanks, I had looked at the FAQs but the association with OpenDNS seemed very strong. However this morning i received the same bubble with different Name servers so I guess it must have been uTorrent. ;)

This is not actually directly related to OpenDNS (curious about your findings though).

218.13.212.231 is a dynamic IP address on a Chinese range, suggesting a residential line, and as such, is likely related to your P2P program.
