Hi All,
	I accept lots of reply with "NO". But here what I wanted to achieve with
this dangerous option is not going to be forwarded out of my WAN. So the
Internet is not going to flooded.
	ASCII is best way for explaination :-)

+----------+          +--------+           +---------+
| Windows2 |--------- | Linux  |-----------|Windows1 |
+----------+      ppp0+--------+le0        +---------+

      Now can I forward a broadcasted UDP message from Windows1 to Windows2
and vice-versa? Does sysctl -w net.inet.ip.directed-broadcast going to help
in this? I want to clear one more point here, that there could be many PPP
connection to my Linux box, depending on number of employees connected to my
organization LAN via PPP WAN.
	Please guide me for setting up IP/Netmask and routing table to achieve
	Thankx for your suggessions.
