can anyone help me identify a MS-owned IP address? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been getting a very large amount of traffic (a sustained 5MBit bandwidth) from a single IP address.  The whois entry for this IP address points to Microsoft, and upon digging I can find DNS entries that would suggest it is in the MS Azure cloud assigned ranges.

    Please excuse the cross-posting, it was suggested I try here on the MS Answers forum: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_other-networking/can-anyone-help-me-identify-a-ms-owned-ip-address/c58c1184-4dc3-48d3-a752-01f65f3b0357

    Can anyone help me identify the following address so I can determine whether this (now blocked) traffic is legitimate or otherwise?


    DNS Entries I found: 

    * respond-adserver.cloudapp.net 
    * s.gb.respondhq.com

    Thanks in advance for any help.
