Broadcast Question

Unanswered Question
Feb 15th, 2007

Hello All:

I believe this is a very basic question so this is why I chose to post it in this forum.

Have a DMZ configured 209.178.228.128/25. I just noticed while looking through firewall logs that each machine in the DMZ is ocassionally sending a boadcast packet (protocol 17) to 209.127.228.127 which is being dropped.

This is not causing any issues other than filling up the FW logs. .127 would be the broadcast address for the other half of this class C correct? Can anyone explain why this is happening so I can better understand it?

Thanks

I have this problem too.

From what i see 209.178.228.128/25 is completely different from the ip 209.127.228.127 so this does'nt even belong to the other half of the Class C address.

Could you post the logs or do u have some ethereal logs which you could share. Could explain the scenario then.
