    Lately ive noticed a visitor to my site having an IP Address of 0.0.0.0 I found this odd, could this be some sort of attempt to gain access to X10 servers via a backdoor of some kind. ??

    That sounds odd. 0.0.0.0 would typically mean all IPv4 addresses that are on the local machine. Perhaps the server is accessing itself?
    What are you using to collect this information? Which software (if any) are you using on your site?

    Im using smf, the latest version that is supplied in the CPanel, installed automatically. I also am using CloudFlare.

    That software, as many do shows online both members and guests IP adresses to the site admin, and i have a habit of checking occasionally just to see who is looking at my site and from where. This access is not constant just on occasion.
