The results are Inktomi, compare with Freeserve / NTLworld.
Are you sure that's not inktomi2-*not*.server.ntl.com.
That is the host name of the NTL cable modem service, are you seeing spidering patterns from there? Also NTL are running an Ink cache.
What IP's do you have, most cable customers are 62.254.
Definate about that, also had

Separate point. While scanning quickly, also noticed

Not seen that one before (as far as I can remember).
cvx1b is a modem / dialup rack.
IP 18.104.22.168 normally .20 are reserved for gateways.

Why would a dialup rack be interested in robots.txt? Very odd.
Perhaps it's a home user with a robot!
Hmmm, just spotted this too
This seems linked somehow.
cwcom.co.uk was cable & wireless now owned by NTL.
I know the link in that sense, it's the possible link regarding the robots.txt, ink robots mentioned, snoopa, et al?
I've also had
I get numerous m*** numbered ntl ones without the inktomi as I use them for dial up most of the time (not via cable) but the inktomi ones are sporadic.
yes, me too. There must be some reason for this. NTL has got to be involved with ink in a bigger way, somehow.
