Please block this broadcast Traffic from router with applying ACL.

There's no need to block this traffic on the router as the TTL field in the IP header (see OP attachment) is 00. This traffic is never meant to leave the broadcast domain.


If the OS on the server is Windows then you can try running a netstat -ba to see which binary is sending it.

Hi bmbreer,

we are using Linux servers.

pls tell us netstat -ba what is the command? where should we use? servers are connected in L3 switch(cisco 4510R). L3 switch is connected to Router(cisco 3745).

Pls suggest and if you want anymore information let me know.
