Has anyone found away for a computer connected to an NT server on an ethernet network to send an UDP packet with a broadcast IP address to a machine connected to the NT server  via remote access?

I've never tried it, but if I were experimenting...

1. Put the RAS connection in the same subnet as the LAN.

2. Enable IP forwarding.

If that didn't work,

3. Add a default route for the RAS connection to the ethernet connection.

If that didn't work,

4. Add a static route to for the broadcast address (i.e., x.y.z.255) to the     ethernet connection.

If that didn't work, and I really needed it...

5. Read Microsoft documentation and RFC's about internet broadcasts.

If that didn't work, AND I REALLY, REALLY needed it...

6. Call Microsoft
