TCP is fairly easy to troubleshoot by simply using telnet to test.
Unfortunatley this does not work with UDP. For UDP I have found that a
utility like netcat to be invaluable for troubleshooting.
Also, if this was working but no longer works, have you changed the
code in the intrim? If yes, can you test if the old code still works?
If no, were there any changes in the system configurations?
Another strategy would be to reduce down to have some small simple UDP
test programs and make sure they work, and then build from there.
