UseZeroBroadcast

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\ interface-name

Data type

Range

Default value

REG_DWORD

0 | 1

0

Description

Determines whether IP uses zeros broadcasts or ones broadcasts. Most systems use ones broadcasts, but some systems, such as those derived from Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) implementations, use zeros broadcasts. Systems using different broadcasts do not communicate well on the same network.

Value

Meaning

0

Uses ones broadcasts. The ones local broadcast address is 255.255.255.255

1

Uses zeros broadcasts. The zeros local broadcast address is 0.0.0.0.

Note Image Note

A value of 1 is associated with the zeros broadcast, and a value of 0 is associated with the ones broadcast. A value of 1 takes precedence over the default behavior of the system, and it requires that the system uses a zeros broadcast.
