UNIX Sockets - Broadcasting - Broadcast address
Mon Dec 10 20:19:00 GMT 2001
I have written a client program that connects to the local broadcast address
and reads datagrams that are produced by a server. It works on my linux (no
internet) machine. But on my PC under CYGWIN the binding of the socket to
the Broadcast Address give an error EADDRNOAVAIL.
I tried both 127.255.255.255 and also INADDR_BROADCAST. If I change
broadcast address to 127.255.255.254, then server and client both work
under Cygwin, but that isnt Broadcasting address though.
Can anyone help /explain ?
