    Re: WOL and VLANs

    I'm not sure if that will even work since the host is on a different subnet (like my case) if the WOL broadcasts are filtered between subnets.

    I just replied to an email from either you or a coworker, but basically you need to make sure there is a tab in the wol.dat file between the computer name and the MAC address.

    I am not sure as I can't repreduce this environment. It could be that WOL won't work in this situation, or our implementation is bad for your environment. You might try searching for a free WOL utility (command line or GUI) and see if you can get it to work.

    Sorry.

    WOL and VLANs

    I've found WOL works with any PC that is on the same subnet/vlan (that's how we set it up here). If I try to send a WOL packet to another PC on another subnet/vlan (but still on our LAN) it will not wake up the PC. I've tried using the broadcast address of the vlan the PC is on (the one that I wanna wake up), the broadcast address of my subnet/vlan, tried using different ports, tried the root router's IP and broadcast, but I can't seem to get it to work. I tried using port 67 and 68 (DHCP UDP ports) to see if it'd pass the packet but it was a no-go. What else can I do or try?

    Thanks for a great tool.
