They seen my computers behind my router.

By t5341115 ·
I have a dlink router set up on the network at work. Used to share internet access due to a limited number of IPs provided. Can someone tell me how the "higher ups" seen the computers connected to the router. They seen IP's MACs and computer names. I'm wondering if a packet sniffer can do this? And more importantly, how to avoid this from happening again. Last thing, I am in the Army, so I'm sure they have the best program available to find things out like this. Thanks for any help you can give.

Dunno where you setup your router. One thing here:

If you set this up at your office and you are - as you said in the army - contact your IS-Department and check if you need to register your Router.

Otherwise you might get into trouble. I doud your SSG or CMDR would appreciate any reports from your IS-Department about this.

And - about the point ... avoiding this:

I guess you have s'thing to cover/hide. Bad idea 2do this in the army-network! They will track you down and than you're in big trouble. I haven't meet any MSB (military service branch)-Admin that would accept this in his network without shooting back!

I completely understand your point. I personaly am not in harms way by any means. Our Battalion XO has instructed us to do what it takes to provide more NIPR lines then the 5 ips we are provided by G6. This calls for a router, and some way to block them from dectecting it. We are currently working on a sat uplink to provide access to internet, but being in Iraq makes that task diffucult. Is there anyway to block or trick the ip/packet sniffer (if that is the program type they are using)?

Thanks again.. Grawill
