you can send th emessage to be broadcasted to the network broadcast
address, which is of the form x.x.x.255 where x.x.x is network address,
example in lan it is usual 192.168.x.
so the broadcast address 192.168.x.255

Hello André if you mean in this context sending a message to another
program on the network from wich you do not know the ip adress etc etc
then investigate multicasting
in my situation i had a remoting server , clients needed to connect
however then the user should enter the server name ( or IP ) and
portnumber to use .

so now i made it so that the client starts up sends a multicast with a
server request , the server answers with its name and portnumber so no
user interaction is necessary

if your problem is simular then this might be the answer "Multicas
messaging"
