Thank you for the response Serge.
There is a kernel extension for MacOS but that's not the kind of a  
solution
I am looking for.

Are there any good working user-space implementations for SCTP protocol?
I'm looking for a portable SCTP stack which would work with Windows/ 
Linux/MacOS/etc.

Would there be any interest in creating such stack for Erlang ?

The only concerns I am having are for performance reasons of such  
piece of software.


Do you have any comments?
