Also if I look up the IP address by the name such as
Host Name : swupmf.adobe.com
IP Address : 22.214.171.124
which is a completely different set of IP numbers.
So are 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 tracking sites for adobe?
I don't care, I just want to make sure that I am not being maliciously redirected
A word of advice. Since all of your threads seem to be somewhat related, you should keep them all together in one thread.
It gets confusing for those of us trying to help plus, you may have issues that are related and not know it. Of course since they're scattered all over the forum, it may not be noticed by the person that could possibly help.
Does this scenario I show make any sense to you?
A large company, especially software company, has likely a large number of servers on the net. Most, or each of them have a different IP address, like www.adobe.com = 184.108.40.206, or ftp.adobe.com = 220.127.116.11, etc.
They do not necessarily have to be in the same IP range, but as long as these sites are addressed by name - as long as you see the adobe.com domain name in it, you should be safe.
So not a problem the the host name is
swupmf.adobe.com With the Ip number address of 18.104.22.168
But If I search swupmf.adobe.com using the name I get IP number address that is different such 22.214.171.124
I guess I wonder why the number address showws different when you search it by name? Is it really not something to worry about?
as you say about large companys having large servers, would it also be likely that they have servers where the IP address does not contain their name
I don't think any software (except malware) will connect directly to an IP address, as these are often dynamic. The connection will most likely go through a named address, so that the server can be found, no matter what its current IP address is.
Thank You Pat. Are you an Adobe staffer? You have been so helpful
