    I have a Windows 98 that broadcasts UDP. Is there a way to turn it off?

    Is there a way to find out where any of them comes from? I checked TCP/IP
    property, only TCP/IP protocol is installed. Thanks.

  4. UDP is generally considered a part of the usual installation of TCP/IP.
    What makes you think that your system is "broadcasting UDP"?

    There are some rather annoying spammers out there who will tell you that
    "your system is broadcasting your IP address". That's rather like telling
    you that your house is going around telling people where it lives. Let's
    start by finding out what is giving you the impression that unwanted and
    unnecessary broadcasts are happening, then we can proceed to see what can be
    done about them.

    Thank you very much for taking time to answer my question.

    I dial in to the server from Windows 98. I don't open any browser. I let
    the computer idle for over 1 hour and it never disconnected itself. It was
    supposed to be disconnected after being idle for 20 minutes. I looked at
    my Access Server and saw a lot of UDP packets coming from this computer.

    Other operating systems (Windows 2000, XP) got disconnected for being idle
    after 20 minutes. Please let me know if you have any questions or
    suggestions. I am running out of ideas as to why this computer never
    disconnected itself.

    This is a good freeware package for viewing the processes running on
    your computer. You will be able to see if there is something running
    that you don't expect.
