1. Generating a wake-on-lan "magic" packet on Linux?
Hey guys, I got a question...
I have a small LAN, one box connected through a cable modem, that's
always on. I have another box that has a WOL (wake on lan) motherboard
and a WOL-able NIC (3Com905) that's properly hooked to the WOL header on
I would like to be able to start my second box by sending a signal from
the first box over the ether wire. However, I need software capable of
generating such a "magic" packet. HP, Intel and some others make such
programs, but they're for Windows only. I would like to know whether
there's any Linux program that's able to generate this packet and wake
my PC. If there isn't such a thing yet for Linux, here's what 3Com's
site says about this "magic" packet:
Q: What is a magic packet?
A: A magic packet is a valid Ethernet packet that contains a
synchronization stream immediately followed by 16 repetitions of
the destination MAC address. The synchronize stream is a 6 byte
field of F's. This magic packet is not protocol specific. It can
be IP, IPX, etc as long as it contains the sync stream and the 16
repetitions. This magic packet can be routed in order to wake up
a remote PC. Since it is a valid Ethernet address, the RWU NIC can
accept broadcast or multicast packets as long as the NIC's MAC
address follows the above format.
So, is there a program I can use? Since they mention above that the
packet can be routed, that essentially means the two machines need not
be on the same network, right?
In Linux We Trust!
