That's a symptom when connecting to Brian Godette's Enhanced Reflector
(hey..at least he TELLS you your IP is incorrect..rather than just timing
out without a clue as to what the problem is).

He has an explanation at http://www.xposure.net/culist/FEB/msg00138.html
Brian mentions...
"This is a message that's generated by ERefs if your CU client has a
different IP address than the physical interface the packets originate
from, this usually only happens on systems with more than one IP interface
defined (Ethernet & PPP). To fix which IP is picked you need to remove
dial-up networking, reboot, and reinstall dial-up networking, it will then
use the IP from the PPP session as the default IP when you're connected to
your ISP."
