Hi,
DocWilco and I came up with this patch for the linux kernel at Quakecon
last night based off of his BSD patch that works around the programming
oversight in Quake 3 that causes packets from the dedicated server to
not broadcast when the +set net_ip option is used on a LAN, it isn't an
issue with internet servers since the send heartbeats to the id master
server. The behavior is off by default and can be turned on using a
sysctl.
