Thats odd - that address is in the unused half of a class C address  
space, the other half of which is allocated to UQ Vislab. If the  
address ended in 179 instead of 79, it would be our old AG2 server.  
The AG3 server and bridge is at 178.

It may be worth checking what Bridge Registries you have assigned in
