We have Windows desktops with XP SP2 installed. We have servers on the network but they are not Windows servers. One of the Windows desktops produces many broadcasts to _._._.255 on port 137. We have tried disabling file and print sharing and master browser but neither has helped. Our first question is what is generating this traffic and how do we turn it off. Our second question is that many (but not all) of the other desktops are generating many packets aimed at one of our non-windows servers using port 135. We also want to know what is generating this traffic and if we can safely turn it off on the desktop. Thanks in advance.
