erm, but surely UDP + packet reassembly ~= TCP ?
I know there are applications (like VOIP) where maintaining a realtime
connection means dropping the occasional packet, but surely this would
require renegatiation of the SSL connection for each data packet! That's
where protocols like IPSEC might be a better solution.
Of course you could encapsulate your UDP packets in a SSL (stunnel) wrapped
TCP stream to avoid the renogation problem - this is well documented for *nix
Or did I miss something?
