I thnk the relevant port is 1434 (UDP). YOu have to be a couple patch
cycles behind to be directly affected, and it appears form here as if
your local network spaces are either toasting, or unaffected. (this is
really trivial to fix at gateways, firewalls, routers once you know what
is happening. SFU in BC went from floored to running fine in 10 minutes
once they knew what was up, for example. UC Davis... wasn't so lucky in
figuring it out)
