If you are going to crack a 192 IP address (non-routable) and no idea of
the gateway IP you are my new hero.

You're not very familiar with security, Carsten, are you? ;-)
See your nearest bookstore.

Honestly people. At the very least, if you DON'T show your IP no one can
use it to crack your internal LAN.
Just use Because if you do show it, it can potentially
be used. 
Yes, this is a very very small thing in the realm of security. That
doesn't mean you should wave it away, Podsnap :-)
BTW, the very fact that it is supposed to  be his 'private' IP is all
the more reason not to show it.

May I see your iptables rules, complete with IPs please ;-)


P.S. Take it easy. No hurt feelings intended.
