  1.  permalink
    if I ping my server named 'heroix' then I get the following output:

    Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:
    Reply from bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=54
    Reply from bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=54

    I have no idea where the is comming from and the ip-address above is incorrect too, it should be in the range.

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    I already tried, to no avail: ipconfig /flushdns
  2.  permalink is probably coming from DNS suffix andd/or DNS suffix search list settings on your computer as set by the ISP via the router.

    That said, ping is a tool of extremely limited usefulness, as you never know where it got name resolution from.

    The other problem is that you have remote DNS server addresses configured directly on your computer. No DNS server on the internet knows where anything in your LAN is. Many ISPs and OpenDNS do not return NXDOMAIN by default, so your network does not try further resolution locally (you sent a local request to the internet). Specifically, OpenDNS returns a valid address for which redirects to the Guide page.

    Configure DNS at the WAN side of the router.

    If you don't use filtering, turn off Typo Correction and the OpenDNS Proxy at your Dashboard.

    Add to your Typo Exceptions - Exceptions for VPN Users at your Dashboard. (Unless you kill the DNS suffix on your machine, in which case just add heroix.
