 You need to set SO_BROADCAST (aka SocketOptionName.Broadcast) to
 enable both sending _and_ reception of broadcast datagram packets on
 Linux.  Whether we should automatically enable SO_BROADCAST on all
 sockets needs careful consideration (we already set it if connect ()
 fails due to EACCESS.)

+In addition, you need to bind your socket to the "wildcard" IP address
+to hear broadcasts. 
+  IPEndPoint myEP = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any, 9999);
+ I usually verify with a " netstat -an" for the entry "udp *.9999"
