Subject Re: UDP ?
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2002 15:08:33 GMT

Serving content over UDP does work with 2.0.  It takes some work, but all
of the required features are there.  However, I modified Apache a couple
of years ago to serve HTTP over UDP, it doesn't work.  The only reason to
serve over UDP with Apache, is to serve a different protocol.

IF you would like a quick little module that creates UDP sockets, and gets
us serving over UDP, I could probably hack something together in a day or
two.  Of course, it will be a couple of months before I get to it.  I just
don't have the time for programming that I used to.  :-(
