Hello.

I have 2 networks: 10.0.2.0/24 and 10.0.3.0/24 connected by a router. I am
sitting on a computer with an IP of 10.0.3.100 and I want to send a
broadcast to the 10.0.2.0/24 network. Now, by rule routers will drop all
packets for 255.255.255.255, so I send out a packet to 10.0.2.255 (subnet
directed broadcast). This packet is not getting through and I was wondering
if there are any special kernel options that need to be turned on to allow
this to happen? (the router IS working, I can ping, ftp, ssh, etc...)

TIA.

-Brad
