I don't understand if it's a joke, it's an internal IP or what...

https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/213.152.161.30
 

Hostname: 30.161.152.213.in-addr.arpa

I'm not particularly paranoid but seeing DoD kind of... well. It's strange, I guess.
Am I missing something? Could this be the reason? https://www.markturner.net/2011/11/09/dod-ip-mystery-solved/

Hello!

Consult the RIPE database too. If someone compiles a private database in which an addresses pool is assigned to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, would it be sufficient for you to believe that it is indeed assigned (and eventually used by) the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

$ whois 213.152.161.30
% This is the RIPE Database query service.
% The objects are in RPSL format.

A simple Google search would have told you what the 30.161.152.213.in-addr.arpa means.
 

Quote

For example, to do a reverse lookup of the IP address 8.8.4.4 the PTR record for the domain name 4.4.8.8.in-addr.arpa would be looked up, and found to point to google-public-dns-b.google.com.

If the A record for google-public-dns-b.google.com in turn pointed back to 8.8.4.4 then it would be said to be forward-confirmed.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_DNS_lookup#IPv4_reverse_resolution

In other words, .in-addr.arpa are used for reverse DNS and the IP octets are "reversed". For some reason AirVPN has configured the reverse DNS (hostname on whatismyipaddress.com) to be 30.161.152.213.in-addr.arpa, instead of server.airservers.org, which would make it forward-confirmed reverse DNS.

Mystery solved and Flying Spaghetti Monster wasn't the culprit. 😉

I think I see the issue: You are looking up the IP address "30.161.152.213" which is not an AirVPN IP, it is the reverse DNS lookup of an AirVPN IP "213.152.161.30". The hostname "30.161.152.213.in-addr.arpa" relates to the AirVPN IP "213.152.161.30 ", with its octets reversed. The IP address 30.161.152.213 is not associated with AirVPN in any way
