Megaco over UDP/IP?

Hi Chris

I have, and I've encountered no problems. I've even found that there is a significant performance advantage when using UDP instead of TCP. The Megaco protocol handles retransmission, and makes TCP connection oriented transport somewhat redundant, hence the performance gain with UDP. However there may be a need to use TCP if the megaco transaction packets become larger than the MTU.
