Cisco 877W Easy VPN Server and Game Hosting

Hello!

Can anyone tell me, is there any way to let broadcast messages go through VPN tunnel without GRE as my configuration is not site to site? Joining client broadcasts its packets in order to find hosted game on another vpn client and can't find it. Client is forced to manually enter IP address of the machine hosting game.

Thanks

Broadcast and Multicast will not go through an IPSEC tunnel, this is a limitation of the protocol itself. Other than GRE I can't see a way to go around it.

thanks for reply!

Maybe there's a way to somehow redirect broadcast message into unicast so this message always will be delivered to one particular machine in the vpn subnet?

I can't use GRE as I have Easy VPN Server setup.

The only one that I know is ip helper, but this is for dhcp messages, I am not aware of another way to do this.
