[ns] How to send a wireless broadcast?
Fri Apr 26 07:55:01 2002
Thanks for you help. But my problem is slightly
different. I can get base stations to send broadcast
packets alright. The trouble is that mobile nodes
cannot receive the broadcast packet even when they are
in range of the base station. I don't know why.
The destination of the broadcast packet is
IP_BROADCAST and the destination port is set to the
port that the mobile node agent is listening on.
Anyone know why this may be?
