UDP Broadcast through PPTP VPN Tunnel

hi ..
I have a Cisco RV042 Router an have configured the VPN Connection successfully ... I  am connected via PPTP from outside my network, and would like to switch  to this network via the WOL pcs one (and also - via shutdown cmd). The switch is not really a problem ....

The WOL Magic Packet is created using a. NET application.
My problem now is that the UDB broadcast packets that are needed for WOL, the router will not pass. Direct IP-addressed packages come without problems, through the VPN tunnel.

Now  I wanted to ask if there is a possibility with the Cisco RV042 router  broadcast packets to pass through, so in the firewall or any other  different settings, or if I pack the Magic Packet is somehow different,  so it comes as a broadcast packet on the computers, but addressed as a package is sent away ....

I hope someone can help me ....

best regards
