QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections) runs a stream-multiplexing protocol over Transport Layer Security (TLS) on top of UDP instead of TCP. Be sure you've enabled the port with both TCP and UDP.

How to verify QUIC is enabled

There’s a Chrome extension which will allow you to see the protocols at work on any website. Install HTTP/2 and SPDY indicator, and you will see a lightning bolt in the Chrome toolbar. Blue indicates HTTP/2 is enabled. Green indicates HTTP/2 + QUIC. Hover over the lightning bolt to see a more detailed list of protocols in action.
