Re: Lot of UDP traffic shown by iptraf. Does it mean problem?




Can just be iptraf doing DNS lookups of stuff flying by.

Incidentally this is a good way to realize if someone who doesn't
realize they should turn off DNS lookups is running tcpdump or another
sniffer against you locally... but in this case it is you running the
sniffer and creating the noise, so no worries :-)

Hi Andy,
You were spot on. I disabled the reverse DNS lookups in iptraf and all
went quiet. Thanks for your reply.

Regards
Vijay
