Tracking down the problem

Is there a way to track down what process is sending to a certain port? I have some thing pounding the network with requests to a multicast IP that doesn't exist. I have shut down all comms related processes and yet it is still there. Need a way to track the port or IP back to the process. Thanks in advance.

use "netstat" + "lsof" if they are present on your flavor of unix.

That would only tell you if a UDP port was "connected" to the remote port....?

Did I got the question wrong ?
lsof | grep gaim 
gaim      30514 sysgate   18u     IPv4      97106                 TCP> (ESTABLISHED)
gaim      30514 sysgate   20u     IPv4      97116                 TCP> (ESTABLISHED)
