After updating the POA to GW 8.0 Support Pack 3 running on Windows, the POA crashes frequently.  This has also been reported by some customers running GW 2012.


The workaround is to add the /udpslap switch to the POA startup file and restart the POA. This will bypass the TCP notification and use the UDP notification instead.


The core happens in the TCP Notify code.
At the time of the crash the log shows:
13:59:19 2FD4 Notifying client at: UDP port 1127
13:59:19 247C Distribute message from: user1 (user1)
13:59:19 247C Begin distribution to 1 users
