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 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.

Ok I am all set, first off the settings are entirely be default at set up.  The settings all for outgoing traffic to initiate inbound traffic on a seperate port.  In particualr games, but there are other uses....all of this is im "Port Triggering"

 L2TP Triggering - Layer Two Tunneling Protocol
 UDP Any -> 1701 UDP Any -> Same as Initiating  
 TFTP Triggering - Trivial File Transfer Protocol
 UDP 1024-65535 -> 69 UDP Any -> Same as Initiating
