UDP is a connectionless transport layer protocol that is responsible for sending and receiving datagrams. It is defined in IETF RFC 768.

A UDP listener is an open socket that waits for and receives UDP datagrams. Because UDP is a connectionless protocol, the listener does not maintain a connection to a remote endpoint.

The following example displays the active UDP listeners.
