WOL (Wake-on LAN) and routing

Unanswered Question
Mar 6th, 2007


We need to route WOL packets from a vlan n to vlan b,c,d,e,..

What needs to be enabled on the router vlan interfaces?

I found "ip directed-broadcast" but it seems not working yet.

Thanks a lot,

I have this problem too.

I assume devices in the default LAN receive the "magic packet" fine?

Is there a default address that is set on the server? If so, can you tell me what it is pointing to?

I'm having the same issue. My server guys came to me last week wanting to impliment this to patch systems. So my question to you is, what do you mean by your question? :)

Is there a "default address" parameter I need to ask the server guys about? And what should this parameter be?
