I have a Cisco Pix 501 VPN endpoint to my home LAN. I am able to VPN in without an issue using the Cisco VPN Client for Windows. I am looking to be able to use Wake on Lan to power on a computer when needed. For some reason this is not working for me, I have confirmed that the Wake on Lan does work on the Lan with the VPN. What am I missing???

If I remember correctly, wake on lan uses broadcase. PIX should not let broadcast pass through VPN tunnel.

Interesting, does this resolve the issue?
