Cheers guys, I wondered if that was the case, I knew 192.168.x.x. was part of 
my IP at home and here, but I'm no expert when it comes to networking I can 
just about set it up at home now (Remember the 50 million emails when I first 
started and wanted an NFS share? ) but I heard the guys talking at about 
9.15am this morning saying something was going on on our network and then I 
got the system mail at 10.00am with the IP message.

As they've all buggered off out I panicked (Visions of "Stop that bloody Linux 
download" came flooding over me) only this time I was thinking someone had 
got through our firewall.

Cheers Guys
