Dear mr/ms,

I am sorry about this.

There is nothing wrong with my server. I issued a “nmap -Pn 192.68.251.0/24” command to find a Cisco router on my internal network. However, I did this in the wrong ssh session window, thus on the wrong server. That server happened to be 78.46.35.134.

Thanks for notifying me, I am sorry if I caused any trouble. It will hopefully never happen again.

Herman Harperink
A very satisfied Hetzner customer.
