Unless you have a router that is susceptible to being hacked, the external IP address comes down the line from your ISP's servers and the router's firewall is usually quite robust and therefore the DHCP IP internal IP addresses the router assigns to devices will equally be secure.

Does that answer your question ?

Hi, Persistently asking this , because, even for log in to this site, i was given maths and capcha to log in. This i raised to Shane and he says some technical terms which i was not aware of before, but slightly picking up now, that some honeybot.org has stopped my log in smooth process , as i logged on an infected ips.
                            So i raised the question of my presumption of infected ips . I also went to that site and noted that so much of infected ips list there. So, i had the doubt, if one logs in a infected ip, external ip allotted, then there is possibility of all the security settings vulnerable. I will try to get that link in my next post

The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

Hi, also see the ips near column near your ip .
My ip is given below, which i removed. That means my presumption of external ips influencing the safety of settings is then true. See for your self boggin

I don't know where the link you posted in Reply #46 was supposed to take me, but it just bounced me back to the forum index.

So have you installed Honeypot ?

I've found these two articles which may or not be of interest, but I've never come across this program as a means of detection.

Hi, Boggins, there is no problem in accessing the link The link was given in my previous posts 3 years back. Just go there and click dashboard and you will see the infected ips list spamming and etc.

When I've just clicked on the link again, it took me to your earlier thread, but I can't see where to view any IP address of a Poster - there's normally a small icon.

What more do you want from me on this ?

Hi, Boggins, i got the matter. I have signed in to the website. Then , when you log on, you see the menu dashboard and you click and it will show you the ips infected near your ip. My query is related to the security settings being compromized by this kind of infected external ip. Thats all

If you logged in, you will be shown the dashboard, which gives the infected ips near your place, as i enclosed in the picture. I think my query centred upon dns and network security. My query is if a ip you log in happens to be infected, are the secure settings you make becomes vulnerable, since the ip is already infected.
                                              I raised this query when i had the problem of freely logging to this website and the rest of the story is given in my old thread link. Then, i did not know much about those things of external ips and all that .

Hi, I have not downloaded any honeypot. I just registered in their message board. When i open it normally, i do not find the details.But when i registered and then logging on, i could see the details. Thats all. I do not want any one to download honeypot.
