UDP Broadcast Relay¶
Certain vendors use broadcasts to identify their equipment within one ethernet segment. Unfortunately if you split your network with multiple VLANs you loose the ability of identifying your equipment.
This is where “UDP broadcast relay” comes into play! It will forward received broadcasts to other configured networks.
Every UDP port which will be forward requires one unique ID. Currently we support 99 IDs!
You can run the UDP broadcast relay service on multiple routers connected to a subnet. There is NO UDP broadcast relay packet storm!
To forward all broadcast packets received on UDP port 1900 on eth3, eth4 or eth5 to all other interfaces in this configuration.
