R – Does SCTP works as advertised using Linux


I am planning to use SCTP for a embedded Linux project. Anybody has some comments on SCTP usage, mostly in one-to-many mode? Did it beat using a home-made UDP-based equivalent solution?

I control the network environement and all devices involved, so compatibility is not an issue.

Best Solution

I have made extensive use of lksctp and have found it to be robust and interoperable with many other implementations of sctp. The standard for the sockets API for SCTP is still evolving but is quite mature and I would expect any further changes to be backwards compatible.

I would use it with confidence.
