An IP directed broadcast is an IP packet whose destination address is a valid broadcast address for some IP subnet but which
originates from a node that is not itself part of that destination subnet.
A device that is not directly connected to its destination subnet forwards an IP directed broadcast in the same way it would
forward unicast IP packets destined to a host on that subnet. When a directed broadcast packet reaches a device that is directly
connected to its destination subnet, that packet is broadcast on the destination subnet. The destination address in the IP
header of the packet is rewritten to the configured IP broadcast address for the subnet, and the packet is sent as a link-layer
If directed broadcast is enabled for an interface, incoming IP packets whose addresses identify them as directed broadcasts
intended for the subnet to which that interface is attached are broadcast on that subnet.
The access control list (ACL) option for directed broadcast is not supported in vManage.
To enable the translation of a directed broadcast to physical broadcasts, use the ip directed-broadcast command. To disable
this function, use the no form of this command. By default, ip directed-broadcast is disabled and all IP directed broadcasts
ip directed-broadcast and no ip directed-broadcast
This example shows how to enable forwarding of IP directed broadcasts on Ethernet interface 2/1:
device(config)# interface ethernet 2/1
device(config-if)# ip address 10.114.114.1 255.255.255.0
device(config-if)# ip directed-broadcast
