That's the right idea, but the second one above already
includes the first.
Your network configuration seems a little strange.
What is the address and netmask of your server (or
the addresses and netmasks if it has multiple interfaces)?
You should probably just broadcast to whatever subnet(s)
it is on. You need one broadcast statement for each
interface on the server.
