So your machine is 172.16.37.164, which you have to configure and tell
your ISP because they NAT externally from 188.8.131.52 to many internal
Therefore more than one person could have an external address of
184.108.40.206 mapping back to their 172.16.37.* IP?
Even though only one person could have 220.127.116.11:80 mapped back to
Are you sure about how this works?
