Hi, I'm seeing a lot of IM Remote Access connection attempts in the AccessLog like so:

10/26 12:05:50  imrm  Remote - 127.0.53.53 denied access.

Is anyone else observing this? Any indication what is causing it?

Google has this to say about that address -

127.0.53.53 is a special IP addresses that is used by ICANN to prevent DNS name collitions with the new gTLDs. In your case the ".BAR" gTLD was delegated in February. So the 127.0.53.53 is a big hint for people using .bar in their internal setups that the .bar domain name will be used in the global DNS very soon.

I wish we could provide more information but it's outside of Intermapper.
