Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Right, so I've got this little linksys BEFSX41 here. As one would expect, it's being used for NAT/PAT between the private IPs and the public IP. I have discovered a rather annoying "feature", though. It's translating plain text IPs that are in IMs. So, for example, I IM a co-worker "Hey, test this for me - http://192.168.3.99/blargh.html". He receives "Hey, test this for me - http://184.108.40.206/blargh.html". Obviously, that's incredibly shitty and gay and not really going to work.
I'm searching for a way to turn this off, but am not finding it so far.
It's also possible that it's MSN Live Messenger doing it as it seems to only be happening through Live Messenger, but due to the info needed to be doing this, it seems far more likely that it's happening at the router.
