Hi everybody
I'm facing some problems with Kerberos authentication using UDP protocol.
As suggested by Microsoft using TCP protocol the problem has been solved
instead.

Questions:
Why Microsoft uses UDP by default if there are authentication problems?
What would be the global impact on the network (WAN) using Kerberos
authentication through TCP? Would it be a suitable solution?

Any help really appreciated.
