I have written a server, who get a broadcast message from a host, which is 
searching it. In my case it could be possible, that the server is wrong 
configured so that it is in the wrong network. But it should answer to the 
broadcast message, that the host knows the server is there. I thought I could 
only set a route to this host and don't change anything else.
But I think it ist o.k. like this.

Thank you for your help,
