My internal I.P. filter no longer works.

My internal I.P. filter no longer works.

 

My own page views of my Web site now show up in my Analytics > Overview > Real Time, after years of not appearing there.

 

I checked online (by looking for my public I.P. address there) and verified that the I.P. address I filtered in Google Analytics is still the same as my current public I.P. address.

 

I also ensured that I typed the I.P. address correctly according to the instructions – excluding the I.P. address equal to _______________ and including the periods between the four numeric sections of the address.

I think a clue to this mystery – something that I've noticed that's different now – is that when I look up my public I.P. address, most I.D. sites identify it as a long string of 31 numbers and letters interspersed with colons.

To find my standard, four-part I.P. address (which has only ten numbers, separated by periods), I had to see a site called "IPecho.net".
