packet size 48.

Hi

I am seeing lots of packets of size 48 originating from one of my 'inside' server to external IPs.

Can any one suggest me what kind of packets those might be,,??

(in the mean time i am setting up syslog on my pix to observer the traffic)

Re: packet size 48.

Hello,

these could be 48-byte ICMP time request/reply packets in order to synchronize time between machines.

I think LINUX uses 48-byte packets for traceroute and ping as well.

It could, probably last but not least, also be the 48-byte header of an iSCSI packet.

Do you have a sniffer to find out where these packets come from ?

Regards,

Georg
