we have a windows 2003 r2 64 bit  server and monitored by logic monitor ( snmp monitor)
logic monitor is reporting that the server is receiving many udp packet on non listening ports

i have install wireshark on the server
i have created a query "udp && ip.dst==192.168.49.67" which is showing me all the packets  which are udp and have destination ip as my server ips.

Please let me know if i am on right direction , if so how can i progress it further.

Well, I think that wireshark terminology is either:
"capture filter"
or
"display filter"
(and not "query").
This is important because the notation for the two are unfortunately different!!

What you have appears to be a valid display filter.

Sure.  Just look at the packet list.  The Source and Destination IP addresses are in the default listing I believe.  So that should take care of the IP address question.

Then, you should see in the expanded packet display at the bottom of the window, things like:

User Datagram Protocol, Src Port: snmp (161), Dst Port: 50864 (50864)

Then, after you look at a few of these, if you like you can set a display filter to show just the port or ports of interest.
&& (udp.port==xxxxxx || udp.port==yyyyyy) where xxxxxx is the port number and || is "or".
