Suspicious Connection - device connecting to its own IP address?

The message I've been recently receiving on my Orbi app indicates that my Buffalo NAS is suspiciously connecting with itself.  Can anyone explain this?

 

The full message is:

NETGEAR Armor detected that a suspicious remote location 192.168.1.164 attempted a connection to LS210D643 and blocked that connection

 

The device LS210D643 has the local IP address of 192.168.1.164, so how is this possible?

 

I do use its Torent client, if this is relevant

 

Thanks

it could be something its hosting on its own self. Like a VM. 

did you check with buffalo on it?

I haven't checked with Buffalo, but it's a device I've had for a number of years without issue.  Basically, it's a fairly bare-bones single-drive NAS with an embedded Torent client.

Might just be how armor is identifying it with its setup.
