This chapter describes commands that are specific to UDP type links. These commands apply to the currently active link, and are only valid if the currently active link has type udp.
It is suggested that the
set iface mtu command be used
when this link type is in use to avoid IP fragmentation if you want
to get something better channel utilization.
Note: Technically this device type is not completely correct, because PPP links are not allowed to re-order frames, yet UDP packets can be delivered out of order. Therefore, if you use this link type you should not enable multi-link PPP, PPP encryption, or PPP compression. Otherwise, out of order frames will be dropped, leading to performance degradation.
set udp self ipaddr [ port ]
Sets the local IP address and port for the UDP connection. If none is specified, any suitable local IP address is used. Port specification is required for incoming connection accepting.
set udp peer ipaddr [ port ]
Sets the peer IP address and port for the UDP connection. Address and port specification is required for connection originating. For incoming connections it is not required, but can limit who can connect to us.
set udp enable option ...
set udp disable option ...
Enable and disable UDP device type options for the link.
The following options are supported:
This option enables the initiation of UDP connections to the peer. If this option is disabled, mpd will not initiate any UDP connections.
This option enables the acceptance of incoming UDP connections. If this option is disabled, mpd will not accept any incoming UDP connections.
