Analyzing traffic (ping requests I didnt do etc)
Posted on 2004-09-04
Watched some traffic this morning . I saw a few ping requests, that I didnt iniate, from the pc downstairs. No one was home but me.
192.168.1.8 (host) first did an ARP request to locate my router (192.168.1.40).
It then got the MAC and sent a ping request
A few minutes later, another pc in my network sent a ping request to the same router (192.168.1.40)
What is up with this?
2. 192.168.2.2 is doing SNMP broadcasts. It's a wireless access point. Is this normal? I'm assuming it's broadcasting information so an SNMP server can pick it up? (even though I do not have an SNMP server)
3. Seeing my DHCP server doing some broadcasts. (DHCP inform, DHCP acks). What is this?
