the ip 126.96.36.199 is my segment.
That maybe spoofing is the reason that's i know, but why are three diffrent
ip's in one alert.
188.8.131.52( my IP)
For me, my router(FW) becomes an request or whatever(maybe spoofing)
and send a paket back(answer) .
Which server makes the beginning to say this host is not reachable,
my or the other one?
So who makes the alert information my snort or the other router?
