Transport Protocol defines which communications protocol- TCP/IP or UDP/IP will be used by the DS for exchanging data with the network host.

Some aspects of UDP and TCP implementation in the DS are different from standard or commonly used implementation. See UDP data "connections" and TCP data connections for more info on the subject.
