Force AD to use TCP not UDP.

    I have several sites, which are connected with routers. UDP packets are
    getting fragmented, and a lot of thing does produce error, that is usually
    network related.

    I use this link:;en-us;244474
    To force clients to use TCP not UDP, and i would like to fix these on DC. I
    would like to force that all domain controllers use TCP not UDP for
    Can DNS be force to use TCP? I know that part of the zone is replicated with
    AD replication, but I would like to do it even without that.
    Kan I force WINS replication between partners in different sites to use TCP
    for replication...

  2. DNS actually uses both -- TCP and UDP.

    TCP is used for zone transfer (if you don't use Active Directory Integrated
    Zones) and UDP is used for DNS queries.

    Changing UDP (if possible!) would also mean reconfiguring all the clients
    (you would have to tell them to use TCP and not UDP any more)...

    Ok, for DNS.
    I would like to transfer as much traffic from udp to TCP. If DNS and WINS
    are not possible it is not important. The most important part is AD and AD
    replication and all related services and ports that are use for

    I use netscreen in both locations. The lines are gating saturated. I don’t
    wont to put another channel through. The major problem is in root domain,
    especially with DNS. For a month now i have problem with mail delivery from
    FE server to out, because FQDN does not getting resolved. The symptoms are
    something like that . You try nslookup i try to find, and i tried
    first, try the fourth time and i get the error, i chouse ISP DNS, i don’t get
    name resolved, next i get name resolved, and the thirty time i don’t get name
    resolved… There is enormous amount UDP traffic related to DNS. I change
    timeouts for forwarder to 10s.
    But i post DNS problem in separate topic…

  6. I don't have whole picture of your network -- but can't you use local ISP to
    resolve internet related DNS (this would cut down on traffic over saturated
    line) and replicate your internal (Active Directory) DNS to other sites for
    local resolution?

    Yes I set up that to, but no help. In half an our i will post the second
    question how to optimize DNS traffic through domain. The post will be named
    DNS traffic optimization in root/hub configuration. I wont to force other
    traffic not to use UDP. I can ping RPC if I use TCP, but I can not ping RPC
    if I use UDP protocol…

    I use these tool and pass all test,becouse it use TPC not UDP. UDP is
    problematic. What ports does public folder replication use.
    Mr.B, Jul 27, 2005
  10. I believe it uses SMTP protocol (TCP port 25).
