Directed Broadcast

Generally considered more network friendly than an all-routes broadcast, a directed broadcast limits itself to the local network that you specify. Fill sa_netnum with the target network number and sa_nodenum with binary ones. Routers forward this request to the destination network where it becomes a local broadcast. Intermediate networks do not see this packet as a broadcast.
