Configure IP Directed Broadcast

Let us learn to configure IP directed broadcast.
Traffic from remote networks can be broadcast over LAN networks through Layer 3 LAN interfaces. Traffic can be broadcast for a subnet connected to an interface through the broadcast address of that subnet.
IP directed broadcast is supported on an ION device as follows:
  • Incoming interface—Prisma SD-WAN VPN (Private or Public from a branch site or a data center site)
  • Outgoing interface—Layer 3 LAN interface
IP Directed Broadcast is not supported if:
  • A Zone-Based Policy Firewall (ZBFW) is in use for non-UDP traffic.
  • NAT is applied on the Layer 3 LAN interface.
