Bingo! Right on the money again. We've had a lot of these lately. The
firewall product we use has the ability to drop unroutable ip's. In the
beginning I thought this was just 192.168/16, 172.16/12 and 10/8 but I
soon found out it also includes a list of ip's that is marked as
reserved by IANA.
22.214.171.124/8 and 126.96.36.199/8 was reassigned last year, but I think the ISP
only recently started assigning them to clients. We actually had
similar problems from our side when our local ISP started assigning ip's
from 188.8.131.52/8 which was formerly reserved.
In any case, it is fixed now.
