    difference between bind running with tcp and udp?


    I wonder when some people use bind with tcp port ? what is difference between bind running with tcp and bind running with udp? What is recommended ?

    I can understand it going to affect on performance of bind if we use it with TCP.

    It is recommended that you run both. Most requests and replies are sent as UDP. TCP is used when the response is larger then a UDP packet or transferring data from master to slave.
