using ethereal

Used ethereal on saispace to check out the mysterious packet bursts from dharma when it boots up. Filters were useful: capture filter
(host not and (host not our-melb-ipaddress )
since a sftp session was in progress.
Display filter would be
ip.addr ne
and so on.

Nothing suspicious. Only NTP, multicast router solicitation and antivirus updates.

Linuxjournal has a nice guided tour of ethereal.
