I am using a LAN network of over 150 PC behind my Sonicwall PRO 3060 firewall under workgroup.

From the last few days i am facing a serious proble:
1) I am able to open all websites except www.yahoo.com

2) I observed the firewall logs of sonicwall which are as under:

Broadcast packet dropped192.168.145.24, 62324, X0192.168.145.255, 64Protocol:138 Broadcast packet dropped192.168.145.24, 62324, X0192.168.145.255, 64Protocol:137

When i called an engineer to solve this problem he is saying by observing these logs that there is a broadcat in your network as every PC is broadcasting and due to which you are not able to open www.yahoo.com.

I want to add here that if we are by passing this sonicwall firewall and using simple Windows 2003 server as firewall the network is working fine and all websites including www.yahoo.com are working fine.

I want to know that are these logs are normal as i thing these protocols are being used by netbios or are really broadcast packets choking my network

Looking for prompt reply.

Thanx in advance

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Note: You will need to post complete details of your configuration and your specific issue in this new thread for us to help you.

Thanks for your cooperation.
