    Hey all, I use Mullvad VPN on a media machine and have experienced something I can't explain and found concerning.
    I have two machines connected by WiFi to a Router, I also run peerblock on them both. While the media machine was connected to the VPN service, Peerblock started going crazy blocking loads of attempted connections on the other machine which wasn't connected to the VPN. The connection was coming from the 31173 Services AB IP that shows as the DNS address that was being used by Mullvad. I can't figure this out and find it odd, not only how it works but why.

    Thank you for any help
