I am seeing private/local network addresses appearing in my OpenDNS log of domain look-up requests. Entries -- with hundreds of hits each -- include "family.home," "[nameofchild]-pc.home," "hp0ad494.home," "wpad.home," "isatap.home," etc.
I'm very much computer literate but not very knowledgeable about network operations. Is this normal? It seems strange. Why would transmitting local network information to OpenDNS be needed or necessary? If not normal, how might I prevent my local/private network locations from being transmitted over the internet to OpenDNS?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
