How to identify a Remote Address

Norton Firewall 2011 on my iMac is notifying me that a Remote Address is asking for permission to access the AWACSD file on my computer.  How do I identify that Remote Address (which is also shown as the Host Address?  

I find no internet, wi-fi, Airport ID, IP or Ethernet IP as long and complex as the Remote Access in the log: fd00:6587:52d7:f8e6::1

Thanks for helping me with this basic info.
