Thanks by your replay Alain.
I use udp-sender/receiver in a LAN too but the problem doesn't exists.
I'm using tcpdump to check what packages it's coming by satellite, but in
there looks normal.
I don't know if a solution with timeout can solve my problem, but its my
first choose to fix this problem.
Anyone have this problem related or know anyone who have this before?

Thanks a lot
