Sending large amounts of UDP data

P: n/a
I have an interesting problem when I try to send bulk data over a UDP
connection. When my message length is over 1,400 bytes I get the error "A
message sent on a datagram socket was larger than the internal message
buffer or some other network limit, or the buffer used to receive a datagram
into was smaller than the datagram itself"

Is there anyway to compress the messages before sending or some way to break
up the datagrams? I am sending Serialized classes over the UDP so there is
no easy way for me to split the data in there.

Thanks in advance!
