udp/1434 is not a reserved port. [...] legit
traffic that picked a random port to use for an ad-hoc use.

it isn't legit for what i have in my network though :-)

Really? So you're blocking udp/1434 both in and out?

Got any DNS servers on your network? Any of your desktop clients use DNS?

Recent versions of un*x BIND will pick a random port above 1024 for udp
conversations. It can and has picked 1434.

DNS clients will eventually timeout and fall back to another server, so
any problems would be transient, but the packets were legit, right?
