Take for example:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:60:97:b0:86:6e
          inet addr:192.168.9.3  Bcast:192.168.9.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

The IP broadcast address is 192.168.9.255. Try binding to that.  Only
one interface will have this address, so it implicitly specifies eth0.

In my limited experience, getting broadcasting to work in a portable
way is a bit of a black art.
