Is there an option to connect using UDP as well as TCP? or UDP & TCP.

For image rich content or video (such as remote viewing and administration of CCTV system), or indeed any higher bandwidth animated desktop task, UDP (with less network overhead) far exceeds the throughput of a TCP connection.

Remote Utilities is excellent, adding an option to switch to UDP, like some other 'competitor' applications out there, would make this the best, and only choice.. ever!

Sadly for now, I've had to switch back to using another (less feature rich) but faster UDP app until you can get this option added.

Side by side the noticeable lag with TCP is a definite turn off.  

Is the error-checking overhead of TCP really necessary for desktop view? Shoving the desktop images through UDP would make a big difference in overall speed.

Anything in the pipeline soon?

P.S. I hope this is in the correct place for a feature request, it would be great if others might add this to the wish list.
