How is UDP Broadcast disabled?

I've encountered the phrase "if UDP broadcasting is disabled" in my reading on the subject of NT networking.

But I can't find out where/how this is done.

I think Mario is right, they are not talking about disabling UDP broadcasting under NT but on the network hardware.

Bropadcasts are disabled across routers by default and only some (like Cisco's IP HELPER command) are able to enable it. On bridges normally they are enables but may be disabled in the config.

If you could type in the whole paragraph we could confirm what it means.

That's the answer.  It's what I expected but didn't know for sure.

I don't even know what it means!
