  No.  The only pieces of software that allow TCP transport are:

    Radiator (only TLS over TCP.  I don't think that bare TCP is allowed)

    RadSecProxy (the same)


  It's not really recommended for NASes to use TCP, *unless* they have
high loads.  See RFC 3539 for details.

  What is "high load"?  100pps?  1000 pps?
