[Linux-HA] Newbie - Nodes on different subnet

Dear all, can I set heartbeat to broadcast on different subnets?

I've got 2 nodes with the IP: and
I can ping one from the other OK but when I start heartbeat the nodes
can't find eachother.

I've tried in ha.cf to do:
"bcast eth0" and "mcast eth0 694 1 0"
but neither seems to work.

it works if I use "ucast eth0 10.0.X.1" where X is 2 on node 1 and 1
on the node 2, but I'd rather not have to specified the other node IP
in the ha.cf file is possible.

Any ideas?
