    I recently had a hard drive crash, installed a new drive, managed to copy all data from old drive to new drive, and everything seems to be running just fine. Except, that, I am now seeing two different IP addresses when I mouse over the Agnitum Outpost firewall icon in the task bar. (one is my real ip address, the other is 169.254.117.99). Why two addresses, and how can I get rid of the 2nd one?? I am running win98se,using external serial modem, dial-up. Thanks.
