It could be that the server is using jumbo packets, which are larger
than 1500 bytes. When they hit a 100MBit switch, they might get dropped,
because they are too large. It'll still work with TCP, as TCP will
try to detec the MTU of all routers/switches in the path and use that one.
UDP cannot do that though.
