Had some network problems recently and DL'ed and ran a nifty tool called Network Probe (free v0.4). Got my problem straightened-around but in the process I noticed that my RioCentral appears to be "broadcasting" some amount of traffic onto the network. Here are a couple of datapoints from the logs:

riocentral|192.168.1.110|broadcast|255.255.255.255|27|2349|Sat 13:14:36|Sat 13:18:57

riocentral|broadcast|ether.IP.UDP.unknown (18678)|6|438|Sat 13:14:36|Sat 13:15:26

The .110 address is the RC's. Is this normal, to-be-expected, not-to-worry traffic out of an otherwise completely silent-and-in-standby Central? While I have one RioReceiver client, thus "Serve Receiver Units" is checked, I do NOT use the Central to serve the unit its IP address.

Just a little surprised by this I guess--can anyone confirm is OK...

UDP on 18678 is the part of the Rio Receiver protocol where it periodically asks the Receivers for their status. If you look in the packets, you'll probably see "Status? (What's the word on the street?)".

The Receivers are supposed to respond with what they're currently doing.

It's harmless.

After watching it further it does not appear to be a lot of bytes; I appreciate your explanation Roger and will sleep better for it, thanks!!!!
