>Has anyone out there done port forwarding or DNAT for UDP packets that are
normally sent to the broadcast address (255.255.255.255)?

Can you move the clients to the other subnet?  Even if you get these to
traverse the router, do you know if the server will respond correctly to a
machine on another subnet?
