Hmm... The broadcast messages are restricted in global network area. Otherwise there could be a massive flood... Hehe
You have to create an ''allow broadcast messages'' rule for the firewall if you trust you lan. I don''t see a problem here, but I may be misunderstanding something...

Post more info if you want help.

2. Question:
How does Winsock separate Internet/LAN? Can I choose? ( when using connect/listen/accept)?

It doesn''t. The network stack does not know or care if you are connected to a LAN or whatever. If your firewall is making a fuss about broadcast messages then your firewall is not configured properly.
