There isn't much we can do here.  I bet your destination address
is unchanging just like your destination ports.

UDP apps can and do bind to specific destination addresses and
ports, but the source side is usually wild-carded.

Are both the source address and port fully specified for your
sockets?  Maybe we can do something using if that's the case...
