I believe that this may be some sort of Microsoft'ism as well. I am still
for clearance from management here to send Phil Wood and some others actual
tcpdump files
of this traffic to see if they can help shed some light on this subject.
More to come...

As a follow-on to this thread, I too appear to be getting the same traffic 
profile, with what seems to be the identical content upon casual inspection.

I see these coming in from workstations at a remote site (via VPN) and they 
are heading to our netware fileserver on a regular basis. The snort sensor 
is seeing the unencrypted traffic behind the tunnel walls.

Is this some kind of weird  (read: on crack) way of discovering the path 
MTU to a fileserver for MS clients?
