This optional parameter specifies which Stream protocol will be used to carry Diameter. Options are 'tcp' for TCP/IP or 'sctp' for SCTP (Stream Control Transmission Protocol). Defaults to 'tcp'. Not all hosts are able to support 'sctp': consult your vendor. The protocol setting must be the same as that being used by connecting Diameter peers.
Protocol sctp
Tip
On modern Linux hosts, SCTP support is in a loadable module, and can be enabled with:
modprobe sctp
