Here is the information that I was going to post above. I'd like to know what this means as relates to their being a .mil IP address (18.104.22.168) associated with the Kernal, Android System, and Google Play services of this phone. I note that at the time of this particular event I had the phone in wifi mode only to update a couple of apps. Then I turned the wifi off. Wifi is only used for updates otherwise it's off.
Wondering if this has something to do with the phone or the home network?
So yesterday I installed the 'Android Firewall' from the Google Playstore and just today went through the settings. It has the ability to log accepted and rejected information requests. There are no hacked or cracked programs on my phone. It's straight out of the box with only five or six paid apps and the rest free and available on the Google Play Store website.
I checked all of the IP addresses in the firewall log file and found this one; 22.214.171.124. It's the IP address of the DoD Network Information Center.
Network Contact Information:
OrgTechName: Network DoD
Here is a screen shots and other related information. Note the IP address and the arrows pointing to 126.96.36.199. It's not just any program but it appears the actual Android kernal itself, the Android System, and Google Play services all are devised in such a way as to communicate with the DoD Network Information Center. At least in my case.
So I looked up the IP address 188.8.131.52 on this website and this is what was returned. Red diamond (or square) marks the spot of their facility on this map.
Then I did some further investigation with a program I have that returned this information on the IP address 184.108.40.206.
Anyone smarter than me have some information they'd like to share? Since I was on WiFi at the time would it have anything to do with my home network as opposed to the phone and why would a .mil IP address be interacting with the phone's kernal and android system? I can see it with the Google Play Store since Google was created with CIA seed money.
