I've tried that as well (using remote announce =, but it 
didn't seem to make any difference. That might be a routing issue - I 
didn't thoroughly check whether the machine doing the routing will pass 
broadcasts like that. But in any event, my understanding is that the 
"remote" options were basically dirty hacks that shouldn't be necessary 
anyway. I know that in the past when I've had this working I didn't need 
to use them.
