Does anyone know what this is using port 1433 for?

Differentiated Services Field: 0x00 (DSCP 0x00: Default; ECN: 0x00: Not-ECT (Not ECN-Capable Transport)) Total Length: 732 Identification: 0x0599 (1433)

The Identification field is simply a unique ID applied to each packet a host sends on a particular connection. It is generally only useful if a packet needs to fragmented (say by a router) - each fragment will retain the original Identification. It allows the receiving host to know how to reassemble the fragments.

It doesn't have anything to do with DiffServ (it appears after it), and doesn't tell you anything about the port or protocol that the packet is associated with.
