Hi, Is there any way I can ask the OLPC to broadcast the UDP packets. I am broadcasting the UDP packets by writing to the UDP port and setting the destination address to 255.255.255.255 . I am using ports 61556 and 61557 for communication. So if the antenna of the OLPC ( and hence its wireless connectivity) is functional wont it broadcast the UDP packets it receives for broadcast?
