    The packets I've seen from my iBook have been NTP (network time
    protocol) requests. Your machine may be updating its clock.

    I would like to turn this off as well; for now I have my network server
    ignoring NTP requests.

    When I had this problem, it turned out that my computer was set to get
    its time reading from the network (in fact, apple.com). YMMV, but it
    wont hurt to check System Preferences -> Date and Time -> Network.

    If you connect via PPP, you might also investigate System Preferences
    -> Network -> PPP -> (PPP Options...) -> Session Options: Uncheck...
    Connect automatically when needed
