IP Blocker Question

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I got this yesterday and was wondering what it was trying to block I was not using any browsers I had Skype, Steam, and Pidgin on but was not using them. Has anyone else gotten these ips blocked too?

Hello Ether and Lotus,

Skype using technologies that makes it a peer to peer software. With peer to peer software there is the potential to connect to harmful IPs that are also connected to the same piece of software.

If you would like to know more: to give credit, John A made within his post I suggest reading the reply he created Here. This will explain why we block some IPs while using Skype.

If you have any further questions I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you.
