I've got a Fairpoint/Verison router

The router works great, but one thing I have noticed and can't get a n answer from the vendor on is that ...in the port forwarding there are several dozen (give or take) UDP ports open that I did not setup.  My local expert thinks it might be the vendor access ports to monitor / update the router?  heres is an example:    svchost ( 63944 UDP - UDP Any -> 63944 Any

I've taken the time to delete these but they always come back

Do you have any applications in the Rule Management?  Port forwarding is usually associated with one of these, if it's a common application.
