What kind of SCTP support is there on various Windows versions?


Out of the box, there are none, on any versions of Windows.(Microsoft has claimed there is no customer demand, so I always encourage anyone looking for SCTP on windows contact Microsoft and express their need for one..)

There are 3rd party implementations, e.g.



Recently, Windows support has been added to this userspace SCTP stack: http://sctp.fh-muenster.de/sctp-user-land-stack.html

It will have a paper in 2012 ICCCN describing its implementation.

From the Wikipedia article:

The following operating systems implement SCTP:

  • AIX Version 5
  • Generic BSD with external patch at KAME project
  • Cisco IOS 12
  • DragonFly BSD since version 1.4
  • FreeBSD, version 7 and above
  • HP-UX, 11i v2 and above
  • Operating systems using Linux kernel 2.4 and newer
  • QNX Neutrino Realtime OS, 6.3.0 and above
  • Sun Solaris 10 and above

Various third-party implementations of SCTP exist for other operating systems. FreeBSD contains the SCTP reference implementation.

Userspace library:

So apparently there is no native support in Windows at all. Only through 3rd-party software or libraries.
