      Many of the corporate/government agency procurement systems have purchasing
      modules built in where folks can buy from an approved list of products on an
      internal/intranet catalog and the order will be executed by a centralized
      purchasing module. Products like Ariba and CommerceOne or custom versions
      of the same could be set up to do this. What type of products do you sell?
      Look up the IP number on www.arin.net to start if you haven't already.

      Hope that helps.

      This appears to be a referal from a (likely corporate) lan
      webserver. v3 could be very well a valid domain if you have control
      over the dns servers.

      My best guess is that someone refered it out of a corporate webmail
      or forum system.

      It could also be a faked referer as referer data is just a simply
      http header, but my money is on the former.
