    Configuring Broadcast-Related IP Tasks

    You can perform broadcast-related tasks using the ip broadcast-address and ip directed-broadcast commands.


    • Before you configure IP, you must create the lower-layer interfaces over which IP traffic flows.
    • All IP configurations will be removed from the interface when you issue the no ip interface command in Interface Configuration mode.

    To configure broadcast information:

    • Specify the broadcast IP address for an interface.
      host1(config-if)#ip broadcast-address

      Use the no version to restore the default IP broadcast address.

    • Enable translation of directed broadcasts to physical broadcasts.
      host1(config-if)#ip directed-broadcast

      Use the no version to disable the function.
