  • This action requires some setup in your environment. If using the subnet directed broadcast option, the routers in your environment will need to allow these types of packets from your Recast installations. If using a Recast Management Server, these packets will need to be allowed from the Recast Management Server. When using unicast mode, some switches may need to be configured to forward UDP packets.
