    Hi, I'm trying to figure out if I can get a router or whatever that will accept packets from the WAN and broadcast them to several computers on my LAN. Is this possible???

    Thanks in advance.

    We were recently discussing that in the following thread: Broadcast forwarding

    Unfortunately we weren't able to come up with a solution and I haven't had time to look into it any further yet...

    As an afterthought, if you just want to send a packet to multiple specific hosts (you know their IP addresses) and don't need to broadcast the packet to ALL PC's on the subnet then there might be another option...

    I could do it with software put I was hoping there would be a hardware solution.
