CBB - anonymous users browsing

My site is turned off to all but admins, yet whenever I go to CBB it says "3 Anonymous Users Browsing". Why is this?

Re: CBB - anonymous users browsing

Check the IP address. It could be search engine spiders crawling your site. I have my forums closed to all but certain groups, but also noticed anonymous users perusing the forums. I checked their IP address and found out they were actually crawlers, so I removed the forum link from the main menu to all but the groups that had to log in and the crawling stopped.

Re: CBB - anonymous users browsing

I didn't think crawlers could get in if the site was closed.

How do I check the IP address?

Re: CBB - anonymous users browsing

enable who's online then you can see online users or IPs
then use http://whois.sc/{IP} to find whom it is

Re: CBB - anonymous users browsing

One was Google. The other was this outfit:

Whois Record

inetnum: 60.190.240.64 - 60.190.240.95
netname: HANGZHOU-AIDISI-LTD
country: CN
descr: Hangzhou Aidesi Technology Co.,Ltd.
descr:
admin-c: ZY885-AP
tech-c: CH122-AP
status: ASSIGNED NON-PORTABLE
changed: 20060303

Any idea who or what this might be?
