Details

This property is only relevant for UDP communications (sock.protocol= PL_SOCK_PROTOCOL_UDP). When this property is set to 1- YES the socket will be sending out all UDP datagrams as broadcasts and incoming datagrams won't cause port switchover, even if the latter is enabled through the sock.reconmode property.
