Orphaned DCE dedicated servers

Question:

My DCE dedicated server forks servers that never go away.  How
do I stop this from happening?

Answer:

This problem of orphaned servers may be caused by using UDP instead
of TCP for the protocal.  Entera defaults to UDP if Protseq is not
set in the servers DAP file.  This was verified in a test case. In
this test case the parent server was started followed by 10 clients.
After all the child servers had been forked, the clients were hard
killed (kill -9).  This resulted in several child servers would not
die on their own.  The test case was then restarted using TCP and no
servers were orphaned.
