That's a private IP address.

That would be visible only within your LAN.  Your firewall might  
translate the IP address to another public IP address or translate  
the address and port to its address and a port.  Some firewall have a  
"server" capability which allows you to assign a port on its public  
address to any computer and port in your LAN.  So you might have  
172.20.169.23 in your LAN but look like some other IP address out on  
the Internet.
