I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to finding out who owns an IP address or why I see this one IP,, generating so many hits (I am not a stats wiz but AWStats lists this IP as the one that generates the most hits?)

I did a whois search using a tool I found online and since I am not sure what the info means besides it looked like the IP is owned by Symantec? I was hoping someone might be able to assist me in finding out who ownes the IP and whether or not this migbht be good traffic or malicious use of my site somehow?

thank you for reading my post.

The IP does semm to be from Symantec. No clue what it does though. Can you see any pattern as to which files it requests? And how much is many? You might just have a file that some people at Symantec find very interesting...
