So Im having network bogging down issues. Upon capturing 30 minutes worth of packets, I have come across quite a few (afew thounsand) packets like the following:

# Time Src Dest Protocol Length info
"5227 200.570462000 NBNS 92 Name query NB ##JABBERID##<00>"

Does anyone know what the ##JABBERID## means? I cant find any documentation on it anywhere...

This question is marked "community wiki".
