Issue/Introduction

In a SymantcDLP installation, is there any communication over UDP (for example, between the Agent and the Endpoint Server)?

Resolution

All communication between different servers is TCP/IP based. No UDP is used.  However, UDP is used by various components for internal communication, such as BoxMonitor, FileReader, Active Directory login, and others.
