Michael & Rich,

One issue that I haven't seen addressed in the TCP vs. UDP debate is the effect on those of us behind firewalls. It seems pretty clear that all (most?) firewalls will not pass UDP packets. It would seem that a significant portion of the potential CUSM user base is in the corporate world which is increasingly hiding behind firewalls. Day by day your potential users will be dissapearing if UDP is continued. How is this problem going to be solved?

I finally found a good quote! "Arguing with an engineer is like mud-wrestling
