Windows 7: Win7 constant access to on SAN

Win7 constant access to on SAN

Hello,

I have a DNS 323 network drive (linux) connected to the home network. Whenever my windows 7 machine is on, the network drive is accessed and is using up a lot of the resources on the network drive.

I've already stopped the windows indexing service but that doesn't seem to be the issue that's causing the problem.

Is there anything else that windows 7 is doing that could be causing this?

It would be what ever software you have that is access a file on the SAN or just accessing the SAN in general. How is the SAN being connected to Windows?

That's the thing, it's not.

The SAN drive is on the network with a network printer attached as well. Nothing on the windows 7 pc should be accessing the share.

Also, the only directory shared on the SAN is password protected and I don't save passwords on the computer so it shouldn't be able to access the share...

I just installed avast and scanned the computer and nothing showed up....

Can you log incoming network traffic to the SAN? Even packets if you can?

hum...

Not sure.. I'll have to check the DNS323 forums on that.. basically it's running a skimmed down linux so i'm guess it can, but just need to know how.

I did get information about what port it was coming from, but that's all the information i have so far.

That defiantly isn't any port used by any builtin Windows services...

Without having more information, like packets and other information the port number is not going to be much use. Especially since this port "49160" has no registered service attached to it. It is probably being used as a random port...

Since the SAN is Linux, the simplistic TCPDUMP should be more then enough.
