Re: Message Broadcast

I tried an reverse lookup for 72.24.7.148 and it does not looks like a Red Hat Network server:

148.7.24.72.in-addr.arpa name = 7-148.72-24-cpe.cableone.net

And cannot be contacted to the port 80 either.

Re: Message Broadcast

Do you want to stop the traffic that generated the message, or the message it's self?

If you want to stop the message it's self, then look at your 'iptables' config, looking for any that '-j LOG'.

If you want to stop the traffic, then use 'iptables' to '-j DROP' the matching packets..
