I am wondering if someone can tell me why my Linux box is constantly pinging my Win2000 box. The Linux box is set up as a Primary Domain Controller, providing IP addresses via DHCP. The Win2000 box is a member of the domain.
The echo requests are occuring many times a second.
you probably has several useless service running, like time and finger that constantly ping broadcast to detect other computer
take a look in /etc/inetd.conf and comment useless service, first.
What's your distribution btw?

That's something that occured to me today. I notice that in Linux, ping by default continues until cntrl-c'd, instead of stopping after three attemps, like in Windows. I wonder if, once started, ping could continue after a command shell has been closed?
Anyway, something to look at when I get home tonight.
