Subject:   Broadcast of 255.255.255.255 ?
Date:   2003-05-22 19:54:41
From:   anonymous2
I noticed that there is a broadcast of 255.255.255.255. Why? My isp (adelphia) hands me a broadcast address like that too. I thought the broadcast needed to be the network address with all bits on for the host portion.


Is it a misconfiguration by my isp, or is there some reason why they are doing this?
