First of all, working from a picture is just a PITA, share capture files instead.

So only partial answers can be derived from this picture.

You're showing a DNS query packet, with as the source (thus client) and as the destination (server, or proxy). is some host on an interconnected network, which you can reach via a router.

That is as far as this analysis goes. With a proper capture file we could possibly tell more.

Alright, that sounds about right, also what would be the socket address of the client? And this would be a Client to server communication right?

What do you think the socket address is, and can you tell why? The other question is, is DNS a client server protocol of a peer-to-peer protocol?
