I can think of two possibilities. I assume since you are asking specifically about Port 1050, that you have a software firewall or a NAT based firewall.

Taking a leap into the darkness, is your router by any chance the Netcomm NB5Plus4W as that has a manufacturing defect that causes the port to be open. See the guide guide for port forwarding to close your port if this is your router.

It could be malware opening up your port or it could be your firewall.
