How to enable 255.255.255.255 udp broadcasting

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Abhijit Ayarekar, Aug 27, 2007.

  1. I have a simple program which broadcasts a packet on 255.255.255.255 every
    second but although the packet sending function doesnt return any errors but
    the packet is not seen in the network.
    Is there any special setting for allowing the broadcasts?
    im using vista ultimate build 6000

    There's a thread here which may have some hints at the answer.

    In trying to help the OP for that thread I found a lot of people reporting
    this but not a lot of answers. The last post in the thread has a possible
    answer.
