PIX and broadcast.

Is it a way to allow broadcast on a defined port through a PIX. For example host A broadcasts on udp port 234 and is connected to interface A on the PIX. Host B is connected to interface B on the same PIX and should see this broadcast.

Re: PIX and broadcast.

"I believe" that broadcasts are NOT allowed to pass outside a broadcast-domain. You could configure the PIX in transparent mode, but likely your PIX is already configured and this would not work. The only "broadcasts" that I know are allowed are for DHCP, and Multicast.
