No, they seem to be being generated by my Smoothwall box, but I suspect it is 
in response to something sent from outside.  Certainly it did not happen when 
I was on dial-up, and it would seem strange if Smoothwall blocked its own 
activity related to PPPOE.

If no-one on the list knows what is going on here, I will contact TransACT 
and/or Webone and hopefully someone there will tell me what is going on and 
what the best thing to do about it is.

Failing joy there, I will (continue) to drop the packets as I am now 
currently doing.
