Which of the suggestions did you try?

You still haven't said anything about your ethernet configuration
information, particularly ifconfig output, and your code implies you
are using a non-standard netmask.

Doug reported success, and we send lots of broadcast and multicast
traffic with luasocket without trouble, so its not luasocket itself.
