Are you sure these packets are CIPE related. I have seen both XP and Win
2000 generate a large amount of DNS packets if set up incorrectly. Let me
see if I can remember the story.
I set up a 2000 box and gave it a default gateway and DNS that was outside
the lan. I also added it to a domain that it had not connected to yet.
After rebooting the box and logging in locally I noticed that transfers were
going very slow and that I had a lot to DNS traffic. It appered to me that
the 2000 machine was doing a DNS lookup for every pactet it received and
because the DNS server was outside the lan this generated a lot of traffic 2
to 3 times as I recall. I solved the problem by removing the default
gateway as I did not need the machine to connect to the internet at that
time. Once the machine logged on to the domain it settled down and started
to work correctly. I have seen similar behavour from XP machines as well.
Hope this helps I have been a very happy user of CIPE for a long time now it
just runs they is nothing else I can say.

Yes tried that one and it works fine. 1:1 packet balance at 2-3K bytes
per second. Its only through cipe that this problem shows up, which is
why I came to the cipe list in search of an answer.
This is what it comes down to, with Q3 on XP (or 2K) *and* cipe, there
are 4* or more many packets going to the server as either without cipe
(direct) or with Q3 on Linux via cipe. Strange stuff...
