WAKE on LAN (With Win2K) from Linux

Post by Daniel Smit » Sat, 15 Apr 2000 04:00:00

Has anyone gotten Wake on LAN to work with Win2K???  I haven't tried to get
it to work with any other OS, but using WakeLan-1.1 I can't get the computer
to wake up from Linux.  I've got a Dell with a 3COM 3c905cTX card... The
link light stays on when the computer is off and the cable is connected
inside.  I have Win2K configured to "Allow this device to bring the computer
out of standby" also...

Is there anything else that I might be missing?

WOL wasn't designed to wak up from Stand-By.

You can wake-up powerd-down systems via WOL.
You  have to activate it in the bios

You must send to the computer you want to wake up a "Magic Packet"
wich will power up the system


1. ether-wake / Wake On Lan setup


Stupid questions may follow:

  * Make sure that the BIOS actually supports wake-on-lan
  * Is there a cable running from your NIC onto the motherboard ?

See ya
