Thanks for your question qwerty007. Please don't post the same question in multiple threads. All questions will be answered as quick as we can get to them.

The country your in has very strict limitations on Internet access. The 10. IP address is still a private network just like your 192. IP. The 122. IP address is actually your external IP address. My guess is that you are in some kind of multi-family dwelling or your ISP has you on a proxy of sorts which will prevent you from hosting anything.
