I wrote one of the OS-X.4.11 lists and the responses varied. Don't
worry about it, to it's in all Macintoshes.

Well, I'm not worried about it, but it is not in all Macs.

That URL is in mine as well, but it doesn't really mean anything. The only
annoyance here is that people working on Macs see it, and then (quite
understandably) bother the "owner" looking for more info.

An inactive port has to have "some" number in it until an active one gets assigned, overwriting the original entry. For whatever reason the designer
at Apple chose this one.

Apple really should have used one of the "reserved"
IP addresses as opposed to a "real" one.
