I found packets like this on my home LAN.
A Google search "udp port 889 broadcast" turns up two good leads, one being the old Wireshark Q&A site.

The other site

has a good answer (if you scroll down far enough) but I thought in the spirit of DenverCoder9 it would be good to add a pcap, some screen shots of the diagnosis and notes.

Since it's listening you could also find it with netstat -anbp UDP

I use cFos and have the same traffic. Thanks for the pcap cause I was looking searching for info on 889. Yesterday, I found it connects to a provider in Germany in the pfSense logs so want to add it to the post. , Data Center/Web Hosting/Transit, Germany.,
