Routing Question

06-10-2013, 14:23

I have been playing about lots with more in depth network stuff than I have needed to before and have just noticed something after doing a full TCPDUMP on my Hardware server's ethernet card.

I am getting loads of ACK replies from external hosts -> a sinlge OVH server/site that has nothing to do with me or my server. As far as I can tell reading up these should be going back to the IP they were repying to only and are not some broadcast thing like ARP.

Is this normal or is this a possible switch problem or the guys configuration problem?
