UDP on winsocket

using winsocket i've made the experience only TCP mode is activce, does not matter if i switch to udp mode or not.
i need a connection-less mode and so i need UDP. I switch to udp, start the applet, but it works always in TCP mode.
I tried when the applet was running in UDP mode, sending message in UDP mode, but no reaction. Opening a telnet
request i can see in the 'ConnectionRequest' procedure that the request arrives and if i needed i could handle with
accept and so on.
Any idea, proposal or experience ?

No Winsock support for UDP yet

looking through the source code of Winsock in the Jabaco framework, I've got the impression that UDP is envisaged but not implemented yet.
The underlying sockets are TCP sockets rather than DataGram sockets. The protocol is registered as property but nowhere actually used.

You might want to extend the Winsock implementation yourself and donate the resulting code to the community?

Good luck!
