This is going to be an easy one! (hopefully)
With my Win32 version on netcat (nc.exe) I can do the following...
(No windoze comments please!)
nc -u 192.168.1.255 9999
This broadcasts any data over my LAN on UDP 9999.
I can't manage to achieve the same effect from my Centos (or other) boxes.
It does nothing and returns me to prompt.
Can anyone show me how stupid i'm being please?
