TCP UDP Traffic vs connection

Question

Hi,

A user had asked a similar question before, but the answer was this link which really didnt answer the question.

 

http://torguard.net/blog/openvpn-service-udp-vs-tcp-which-is-better/

 

So say someone has the full PRO VPN service. He starts a "Russia TCP" connection with the client. Does that mean ONLY TCP traffic will be anonymized? So if he starts a Torrent client like Vuze all the UDP torrent traffic (UDP) will NOT be anonymous then? Or does it mean no UDP traffic will be transmitted at all?

 

Or is it that even if you use a the "Russia TCP" server, UDP traffick will also go through anonymized? But if that is the case, then HOW DOES UDP TRAFFIC GO THROUGH A TCP CONNECTION SERVER? Do UDP packets get converted to TCP?

 

And similarly take the inverse situation. What if he uses "Russia UDP"? What happens to TCP traffic? Not transmitted? or converted or not transmitted at all?

 

Please be technical and detailed. I have been trying to get an answer for a long time.

Hi VPNguy

 

It does not matter how you connect for the *initial* connection (UDP or TCP) you will still always get UDP and TCP packets over your conenction.
