I am aware that Azure supports UDP, but does it support UDP broadcast?

I am wanting to use the Jenkins Swarm plugin, which requires UDP broadcast for new slaves to join the master.


I woke this old thread up to add an update. Microsoft got this feedback through https://feedback.azure.com/forums/216843-virtual-machines/suggestions/400782-udp-endpoints and UDP support is added as shown below : Microsoft Azure VMs support UDP


Since i don't use Azure myself i cannot be 100% sure, but it seems it is not supported :

Is UDP broadcast available in Windows Azure virtual networks?

Unfortunately, broadcasts are not supported in Windows Azure.

Does Virtual Network support multicast or broadcast ?

No. We do not support multicast or broadcast.

  • Thanks! For whatever reason I was seeing UDP support but wasn't clear on UDP broadcast. – DonBecker Apr 2 '14 at 2:28
