If it was UDP I would definitely say some sort of game, as 280xx is
plausible for the common port ranges used by several games (Axis and
Allies, perhaps?). It might be those people are all playing a game on
the same server.

The fact that it's TCP makes gaming less likely, but not impossible.

See if you can identify the machines, and see if a game is installed.

  There is no problem that cannot be solved by the appropriate
