probably 1und1 account (DST)
there is a packet from (SRC)

to your port 123 which is ntp (DTP)

no. (well, could be but *really* unrealistic ;) )
what i think:
you probably setup ntp service (network time protocol) to sync your
clock with uni-erlangen. but forget to allow the packets.
or the 'related' state of the firewall timed out for some reason.
or someone else did, syncing his machine while online, hungup, and you
got his ip on your dialup, receiving packets wich the other one

but i can of course be wrong.
