It's possibly the uPnP function of the wirelsss router. It is no longer
registering such an entry after disabling it.

From the wiki:
Dynamic, private or ephemeral ports: 49152–65535

The range above the registered ports contains dynamic, or private, ports
that cannot be registered with IANA. It is used for custom or temporary
purposes and for automatic allocation of ephemeral ports.

    IOW, dunno. See what the remote IP is, if it's localhost, I
wouldn't sweat

Should be a result of enabling uPnP.
