keep getting loads of packets addressed to127.0.0.1
i am having problems with loads of trash packets being sent to the default gateway which then slows the network right down. our isp / lea people are saying that they are getting loads of packets from the following address 127.0.0.1
obv this is the address that you ping to check the local nic so i cant just do a quick search for it and then go and kill the device. or is there???
this is causing the network to slow down and causing the internet to freeze and hang also i have noticed lag in exploring the network caused by this back log of packets on the line.
at the moment im switching off a building at a time and then having to call them back to see if they are still getting the packets. this work can only be done out of hours and only till 6pm as they go home so as you can guess this is a very slow!!
does any one know of a faster way of doing this or how i can search to find out where this is coming from??
