That's not an IP, that's just a long hostname to somebody that has RoadRuner internet. If you have RoadRunner internet, it could be one of your own computers just talking to your server on your network.

My bad, I see the IP in the hostname. Did a WhoIs on it and it just gave me the info for the RoadRunner company in Kernersville, NC.
