Is it possible  to broadcast a simple text message using TCP/IP protocol? How?

I know how to do it using UDP within a single LAN segment  but I need to use a reliable guaranteed protocol. Any ideas, pointers or source codes?

Thanks

I don't think that this is possible. TCP/IP protocol requires handshaking between two parties. Therefore if you don't know where are you sending your data, there is no way to establish such a protocol.
