Hi, I need to send broadcast packet. What port should poll, with which flags and protocol to maximize number of network IP-devices (IP-cameras actually) which would answer it?  Can you help me ? Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean.

First, it depends what kind of broadcast packet you want to send.

You can send an IP broadcast and you can send an Ethernet broadcast and possible other kind of broadcasts.


Second, I don't understand what you mean by port, flags and protocol in relation to broadcasting.

You should use the relevant port (if UDP or TCP is needed), flags and protocol that your IP devices will answer.


I hope this helps,
