the TTL idea is great! but the packet is of course violating this, too:
tos 0x0, ttl 128, id 17466, offset 0, flags [none], proto UDP (17), length 536
the (crappy) solution to a crappy communication:
i added a 2nd NIC for the source-LAN to the final target.
the packet to 255.255.255.255 ends up directly there, bypassing the fw.
the talkback is unicast. the 2nd NICs IP is set to invalid. hope this is enough.
(both VLANs are restricted and local only anyways).
so: issue worked around (dirty), no further analysis on our side (lack o' time).
