AW: TCP vs UDP

From my point of view the only difference as you know is in connection
handling: tcp ist connection orientated and udp conection less.
You shouldn┬┤t close ports - you should close al ports and only allow
needed ports. So you can figure out which ports are needed and if they
are udp or tcp.
