Yeah, I cannot reproduce from any other location so it seems tied to our PAT address... Guess I have to actually do work. :) I suspect malware as our PAT is actually running less translations than typical. Checking with our IDS vendor. Thanks for the follow up.

This usually indicates a heavily malware-contaminated userbase or
1-to-N NAT/PAT with a large N. Having both is what usually triggers
this, but sometimes if you are strong on one, it could be enough.
