A posting on an unrelated subject reminded me about something: I recently 
upgraded my broadband service from ADSL (copper) to fibre, and a new 
router was supplied.  I've since discovered that the router (a Sagemcomm 
F at st 5355), get this, *does not pass outbound UDP packets*!  (And I cannot 
configure its firewall to do so.)  So things like NTP and TRACEROUTE etc 
are stuffed...

So, my question is: is UDP used anywhere in the update process?
