I have Freebsd as a router.
Local network is on interface sk0:
inet 10.254.239.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.254.239.255
In my local network I have a computer(windows 7) that gets it's ip(10.254.239.2) from DHCP server on Freebsd.
- Ping to exact address 10.254.239.2 works fine.
When I try to ping bradcast 10.254.239.255 from Freebsd itself nothing happens:
--- 10.254.239.255 ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
? (10.254.239.255) at (incomplete) on sk0 expired [ethernet]
Firewall allows all on this interface
Where to look? What to do to make broadcast working?
