Can anyone tell me is it h/w issue or kernel..?
And if h/w is it with n/w card...?
I think, you are running samba service. It is trying to register the netbios name server of a windows network.
SRC= source Ip [Your machine Ip]
DST= destination [It is a broad cast message]
You can check it by stop the smb service on your box.
Let me know the status
