Anyone know if there are any people in this range or is it safe to block?

IP: 96.4.0.0 - 96.5.255.255
ORG: Education Networks of America

Students are people, no?

There are many, many ranges used for distance learning. This one just tells you so.

Got hit with this ancient browser user agent and an invalid header:
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)"

I had no clue if students used it or not.

That's why I'm asking.

There was some discussion about this one not long ago. I have since blocked 2 networks, each tracked using about 6 IP addresses, that were repeatedly hitting the same pages every few seconds (every page).

Bill,
I've a 2008 reference where the IP entered with a valid search referral, while using a then valid UA.

"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.30; InfoPath.1)"

They were full pages requests with supporting files.

The down side of the pages that were requested, the content (request for the next page) was faster than most folks are capable of reading.

In addition some of the requests were duplicated by Bluecoat.

I killed msie 5x and windows 98 yonks ago.

Only got one "bad" hit source in that range: 3 IPs in the range 96.4.191.nn - no idea why as it was last year.

It can happen (= I've done it myself by accident) if you inadvertently double- instead of single-click on a link, and the second click happens to land on a link in the newly opened page. But if it shows up more than once, you're beyond the range of normal probability and into "Wow! Damn good impersonation of a human!" :)

lucy,
There are times when you simply dazzle me, and then there are times like this when I just have to "bite my tongue".

Perhaps you should give me some credit? (cash will work also).

There were eleven page requests over two different widget sites of the same topic. Twelve if you count a PDF that was downloaded as well.

Try inadvertently clicking with your mouse twelve times ;)

Don, I think Lucy was just exemplifying an occasion where that scenario could happen, not that it was the case with your report.

We *do* tend to wander off the explicit topic reference from time to time :)

I did say "If it happens more than once..." :-P

Incidentally I couldn't tell from Bill's original post if he looked up the organization.
... provides managed network and communication services to customers in the education, library and government sectors. Their scalable solutions facilitate

... at which point google runs out of room, allowing you to finish the sentence any way you like. Say, f'rinstance, to pick something wholly at random, "... facilitate bot-running".

motorhaven,
I left the range alone in 2008, nor have I changed that.

The referral search words were rather generic for widgets and inline with a student outlining a report.
