The paramaters you give may be unable to resolve from name to numbers. > Can I cache the domain lookup First do a DnsLookup for 'mydomain.com' and then use the IP address.

So if you send too much packets in a short time interval, some may be lost, specially if there are speed differences in network speed between the sender and the receiver. A slow speed segment may cause packet drop. Network congestion can also result in packet drop. Multiple routes may cause packet order errors or duplicate packets. All this is not a matter of component but only the way UDP protocol has been designed. You application must be prepared to all those kind f errors. Or use TCP which doesn't suffer from any.
