What does this mean please?


[link to this post]
 
On looking at router stats I seem to have a lot of messages :

91.125.xxx xxx Type: Destination Unreachable Code: Communication with Destination Host is Administratively Prohibited

They appear with a red light in the traffic signal and some of them are from when I know that the computer is switched off.

The router is a Thompson.

Thanks for any information.

Pete

The reverse DNS ( http://remote.12dt.com/lookup.php ) of 91.125.xxx.xxx shows xxx.xxx.125.91.rb5.adsl.brightview.com

Is brightview your ISP?

Thanks for the reply.

Plusnet is ISP.

Is the message any thing to worry about?

I know very little regarding computers ie could be written on back of a postage stamp!!

Without context it's a bit hard to say. Brightview like Plusnet are now owned by BT.

For all I know that IP address ( 91.125.xxx.xxx ) could be the address of your router. If it is you should probably edit the address to read 91.125.xxx.xxx for privacy reasons.

You can check your IP address by going to http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ip.html

Done as you suggested thanks. Does it matter that in your replies it is written in full. Sorry to be a pain but I'm a computerphobe.

On checking the link it comes up as brightview.

I've edited the address also.

However was the address your IP address? i.e. is is it the address shown if you click here?

Did you mean the stats from your router; orr the log file from your router, or the log file of the program called RouterStats?

I ask as I'm trying to think what is causing the message.

What OS are you using on the computer, Windows XP, Vista or Win 7?

(Edit - Plusnet bought Brightview a long time ago so that is fine. Then as john says, BT bought Plusnet. Brightview is integrated into Plusnet, but they are run separately from BT).

Hi RobertoS

They are from the Events Log from my router.There have been 10 of them since midnight.
My OS is Win 7 and I have Norton IS. Two weeks ago I was changed to 21CN from 20 CN.

Thanks for your time.

Not sure how much it helps, but it is No.10 on this list.

What isn't clear from the message or that lis is which is the source and which the destination.

As john suggested, before all the edits so I haven't seen the full address, it looks from your replies to him that is the visible-from-outside address of your router. Which makes the message useless for finding out anything, in particular where it is coming from.

It's almost as though it is trying to talk to itself and telling itself it can't.

Is there a separate firewall log in the router? If so, see what that has to say.
