Solved computer number fd00:6587:52d7:c85::1 hacking my computer

Specs: Macintosh
This computer (fd00:6587:52d7:c85::1) has tried to access my Mac (OS X 10.7.5) computer dozens of times in the past several days. Is there a way to find out who is doing this? I've also had other computer numbers (ie: 69.22.151.190) trying to access my computer occasionally but I think they are blocked by Norton. Should I be concerned about this? Whom should I report this to?

✔ Best Answer
The first address is an IPv6 address. As most broadband connections don't currently support IPv6 it is most likely something on your internal network; it could even be the IPv6 interface on your computer. You need to check each networked device on your network to see if any of them are configured for IPv6 with this address.

The second address is associated with a server for Akami Technologies; typically this would be something to do with cloud computing.

I very much doubt that either of these connections are attempts to hack your computer. What makes you think they are?

Thanks! I'm not familiar enough with computer procedures to understand much of this. I assumed since the pop-up messages stating that "someone was trying to access my computer" were appearing and offering me the opportunity to 'block' or 'allow' that they should probably be blocked. Thanks so much for the identification!
