I've got a 2000 Domain controller with a lot of 5501 events happening. The bad packets are coming from a particular IP, based in Austria.
I realise that the event is just informational, but I'm concerend that this one IP is maliciously sending malformed packets, and it's slowing down my DSN server.
Can anyone give me a good way to deal with it?

Do you have a ACL/IPSec setup? If so i would make sure that this IP is filtered to ignore all request.

If the packets are all coming from one IP outside your network, and you have no idea what that IP is or why it would be sending those packets, you should consider blocking it at your firewall.  You should also consider upgrading that DC, as Windows 2000 reached end-of-life in July, so MS will no longer provide support for it.
