Recently I downloaded NAI Sniffer to try and get a handle on our network. I was able to find many IP addresses that where running some INEWS program that automaticly checked for updates on weather every workstation that had this installed was broadcasting a large amout of traffic. Once I removed the program from all the workstations my network calmed down quite a bit. Now when I look a the sniffer all I see broadcasting is 0.0.0.0.  I can not seem to track it down.  

on the map it looks like ...

0.0.0.0 ------------------------------Broadcast

Can someone exsplain what this is?

Also any suggestions for what I need to look for other than broadcast would help.

Thanks guys.
