I don't think so.
Google combinations of "udp port 5353" "zeroconf rfc" "zeroconf"
"bonjour" and "rendezvous."
I have it open, but then I see the occasional Mac. I don't think Linux
(yet) actively uses it; Windows XP does not, unless one downloads some
software from Apple.
I think Windows addresses the same sorts of problems with uPnP.
