Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've heard from a friend about a client-server application which initializes on top of SSH connection but implements interactive shell over UDP protocol. It is specifically designed for bad quality connection and keeping terminal responsive and avoiding disconnects.

Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the application. Is there anything like this?
