    Default Broadcast messages across Openvpn Site to Site

    Heres the situation:

    OpenVPN site to site tunnel up and running fine, both on 10.1 boxes. All connectivity works great.

    However, is there a way to send broadcast messages across the tunnel? I think of some things that use it, like my Avast Endpoint Admin Console, that currently don't go across.

    Or do I need to put a layer 3 device in to route that stuff? Either way, I'm happy.

    OpenVPN is a router, it's already enforcing a layer 3 divide. Which is the reason why broadcasts aren't going across it, broadcasts never transit routers.
