So my Fedora machines are sending out DNS requests for weather.noaa.gov and I am using wireshark to see what is going on. I want to be able to stop these request and get rid of the ICMP destination unreachable packet.
Here is what I see in wireshark
SRC DST Protocol INFO
127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 DNS Standard query A weather.noaa.gov
127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 ICMP Destination Unreachable (Port Unreachable)
I thought that the machine might be trying to synchronize to a time server but it is not.
I haven't installed any weather software and the machine is pretty clean of other software being as I am using it as a testbed to test protocols. This machine also has a manual IP address and is configured to not use DHCP.
What is going on with these packets?

nevermind I found a weather service that was hiding on my machine
