Forward Broadcast



  • Is it possible to forward broadcast packages? I will blueprint my scenario! At my home I have 2 main networks, one main lan and one guest lan! I don't what no communications between guest and mais lan, but I would like to share some peripherals! For example my smart tv (so that people can send movies to it by wireless).

    In the example of my tv, the connections is made by broadcast, and for now I have it on my main lan, so people in guest can't use it. If I swap it to guest, I would have to disconnect myself from main lan and connect to guest to use it.

    Any ideas? If forwarding the packages is impossible, I'm open to suggestions that would able me to do this and at the same time keep my network secure!

    Thank You

    Sounds like you want them on your network and not on your network at the same time. Guess you have a decision to make.



  • I don't what them in my network, I what to share some devices between networks. No problem creating a new vlan just to this devices if I need to!

    You will have to get the specifics for each device. You say it uses broadcast but if it's mDNS (bonjour) it's probably multicast.



  • The devices that I wanted to share where the 2 TV's and the playstation 4, from what I seen from the packet capture it looks like broadcast, but who can I check that?

    Thank You
