    EchoLink is currently working fine on my Win 10 box and passes the Firewall/Router Test.

    However, the Firewall/Router Test reports a "local IP address" of 192.162.56.1. The issue is my home network (obviously including the Win 10 box running EchoLink) is NOT a 192.162.x.x network.

    Considering EchoLink runs perfectly fine, I'm confused why this would be. Any insight would be appreciated.

    That IP is most likely the IP address that your ISP assigns to the router.

    If you ping 192.162.56.1 do you get a response ?

    Interesting... it's a Russian IP block. Are you sure it's not 192.168.56.1?

    Probably a Russian Proxy. :rolleyes:

    Oops, yes that was a typo, it's 192.168.56.1. No Russian invasion (yet).

    My router and home network are on a 10.x.x.x network so the router (via DHCP) give out 10.x.x.x addresses (I changed it from 192 for VPN purposes). That's why I'm not understanding why EchoLink is reporting a 192.168.x.x address. Maybe it assigned this to itself? The machine that's hosting it is a 10.x.x.x address. I pinged 192.168.56.1, no response (it shouldn't get a response since it's on a different addressing scheme). Very strange.

    192.168.56.1 should be a gateway.

    Try "netstat -r" from the command line. See what it tells you.

    Well at least it's working. Maybe it was just reporting the old 192.168 address that you used.

    Open the Command Prompt and enter:
    See if any listed network card has that assigned IP address.
