WOL through Telnet/SSH
Note: This is the preferred method to send WOL magic packets remotely.
If you have local or remote Telnet/SSH access to your router, you
can wake up a machine on the LAN by using the following command:
Note that the full path to “/usr/sbin/wol” is important. Simply “wol” will not work.
Substitute AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF with the actual MAC address of the computer which you wish to boot remotely. Likewise, replace 192.168.1.255
with the actual broadcast address of the network (192.168.1.255 is the
broadcast address when the machine has an IP of 192.168.1.x and subnet
mask of 255.255.255.0). Replace “PP” with the port number your machine
listens on (usually 7 or 9).
