I kept my wireshark for a specific time. It captures packet for port 5355 and 67. Then when resolving hostname by tshark, it is giving me some random strings in hostname in some cases. What can be the cause of it?

What version of Wireshark/tshark are you using and on what platform? (Please provide all Wireshark Help -> About Wireshark information.) Also, what random strings - can you provide some more detail here?
