Well, I don't know too much about your problem, but I can tell you a few
things about edmonton freenet (the IP in question)
Most important, it is not really an internet connection.  You dial up, and
you get a VT100 (or sumthin) connection.  They have 2 or 3 servers, which
are connected to the 'net.  When you telnet to the MUD, your server will
request the info, and send it to you, you don't get an IP address though.
It's possible with freenet to have hundreds of different people on the MUD
at the same time, all from different houses, all with the same IP address,
but still all different people.  I have people from freenet on my MUD, and
I've only ever seen and
  Hope this helps.
