UDP can't really say anything about the state of the physical network.
I highly recommend "TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume I" or some other such
reference on TCP and UDP. The PLT Scheme documentation uses standard
terminology, such as "connected", but the standard terms aren't always
obvious --- and the PLT Scheme documentation doesn't try to explain TCP
or UDP.
