Antitrust - Internal Network Address
At the end of the movie while trying to access the satelite system from a building outside the NURV facilities, they are trying to access an internal IP address that could only be accessed from within the corporate network. They are trying to access a 10.10.X.X IP. They could never directly connect to such an IP address as that IP is reserved for use within private networks.

Ahh the wonderful world of IP. When you get a little further along in your Network Essentials book you may understand what was going on there. Basically the satalites are on an internal network and thus can be references by a 10. address (or a 192 or whatever you like). You would not want the command interface for your satalite exposed using a public IP net ID (like 216.254) for then you expose your self to hacking. That is why his buddies had to take over the Synapse system from building 21. Because building 21 is INSIDE the interal network and would thus be recognized. The satalites most likely do have an external IP of some-sort but its vsecured to something similar to port 80. However considering the techonology displayed is somewhat like a global push type technology then external addressing may not be necassary. What is interesting is the fact that the characters had to race to enter IP addresses. In the real world there would most likely be a DNS somewhere that would handle resolution and they would only have to type something like (but of course thats not as exciting).

That was obviously to stop would-be pranksters, who see the movie from abusing an IP that might belong to a real company. It's for the same reasons all phone #'s on TV start with 555

Since Milo worked at N.U.R.V., couldn't he establish a connection by hacking into his own computer at his job. Although they didn't explain how he got into the system, the movie was directed to a certain group as it was. Another piece of technical information can understandably be left out.
