VPN with UDP

VPN with UDP

VPN with UDP

Hello everyone,
I have UDP communication among several hosts and I want that communication to be done using the Internet so I thought it would be a good idea using VPN. I've seen I can implement VPN using PPP and SSH or either using IPSec, the problem is that I'm not sure if these protocols will encapsulate in the end all my UDP packets in TCP packets (because SSH or IPSec), therefore lossing all UDP features. Is that right? In that case, is there any way to implement a VPN for UDP (it is used for a very time dependend application, so I believe TCP it is not suitable as far as it can add important delays). I've seen also vpn-udp but it is a bit weird for me as he recommends using SSH (http://www.ex-parrot.com/~chris/vpn-udp/README).
Thank you

RE: VPN with UDP

You are not going to get any 'time dependent' results over the Internet anyway, so there will be no benefit to UDP.

I tried to remain child-like, all I acheived was childish.

RE: VPN with UDP

You are probably right, but lets say that I use WAN with reserved broadband instead
