Because I use the nets 192.168.1.0/24 and 192.168.0.0/24 on the
both connected LANs.
Thus, I supposed, NetBIOS broadcasts will not be propagated to
the remote LAN.
Traffic appears as well during nights, when only one Linux Server
is running in each LAN.
On this server, SAMBA, Lotus Notes and BIND.8 are executed:
- the SAMBA servers are not connected to each other
- Lotus Notes does it's replication each 4 hours
- BIND is authoritative for 2 local zones and does not
answer requests from the internet.

Will be done this weekend and then posted...
