In this work, we have addressed the complex problem associated with classical reverse path forwarding and have proposed an algorithm to reduce the duplicate packets generated when broadcasting in wide area networks. The objective of our work is to design a broadcasting algorithm, different from the classical RPF method, utilizing the concept of pseudo-diameter to reduce the number of duplicate packets generated further when compared to the RPF method.
