HTTP Over UDP

Hi –

We currently have a hub and spoke network that I would like to turn into a mesh topology. I was informed by our service provider that we can only do this for UDP and not TCP (satellite network). My questions is there any way to translate HTTP traffic into UDP?

Thanks in advance.

My first reaction to that is, "WHAT?!"

I presume you have WAN links to outlying locations.  Are these point-to-point links or is this an MPLS/AVPN connection?

Yeah... I have a feeling that we're missing a LOT of relevant information.

Hi - We are running over satellite point to point in a hub an spoke topology.  My provider says that only UDP is supported to change it to a mesh, TCP would still have to stay as hub and spoke. Most of our internal web server sit in the "spoke" part of the infrastructure., so any of the other sights need to double hop in order to get to the internal sights.

It is incidentally slow, so I am looking for solutions to speed things up a little

If it only supports UDP, it's probably a unidirectional service.

HTTP is unreliable and requires TCP to provide reliable, acknowledged transport. So no, there is no way to send HTTP traffic over UDP.
