No. Probably one the fileservers contacted by this client has also a 
secondary private interface which is not masked by a NetInfo or 
NetRestrict file.
The server preferences of 40006 indicates it is a fileserver not 
belonging to your own network, so it's some work to find out where it 
belongs to.

If you do a "vos listaddr -cell XXX" for all cells in your CellServDB 
you should be able to indentify this server.
