Stream Control Transmission Protocol

From RFC 2960 <>.

"SCTP is a reliable transport protocol operating on top of a
connectionless packet network such as IP. It offers the following
services to its users:

-- acknowledged error-free non-duplicated transfer of user data,
-- data fragmentation to conform to discovered path MTU size,
-- sequenced delivery of user messages within multiple streams,
with an option for order-of-arrival delivery of individual user
-- optional bundling of multiple user messages into a single SCTP
packet, and
-- network-level fault tolerance through supporting of multi-
homing at either or both ends of an association."

To compile this protocol support as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called sctp. Debug messages are handled by the
kernel's dynamic debugging framework.

If in doubt, say N.
