Broadcast UDP packets?

Hi!

I would like to ask, if it is possible to broadcast UDP packets throughout the internet, like in a local area network?

Thanks

    Unfortunately (Fortunately) it is not possible to broadcast UDP packets throughout the internet.

    Imagine that it will be possible and everyone can send such packets.
    Internet will be fall down.

    UDP isn't broadcast. It is sent to a specific IP address. Yes, theoretically, it can be done. I haven't tried it yet, but some day I'll see if it works...
