I was studying for the CCNA exam and I read this: " When a directed broadcast packet reaches a router that is directly connected to the destination network , that packet is broadcast on the destination network "
My question is what if the destination network is more than one hop away from where the directed broadcast was generated? can the directed broadcast reach the destination or it's limited to one hop? if there waws more than one hop and the networks were not directly connected using the same router, will the directed broadcast still reach the destination (that could 2hops+ away) ?
I tried to build a small lab in packet tracer to test it but apparently packet tracer doesn't support the ip directed-broadcasts command
