There will not be any legit traffic sourced or destined with a port of 0
either UDP or TCP. It is offically a reserved port. A source port from a
client should be in the range of 1025-65535. 

The range for assigned ports managed by the IANA is 0-1023.

The Registered Ports are in the range 1024-49151.
