Simple Wake-On-Lan

I have a very simple setup and I want to be able to broadcast the WOL packet from inside the network when I VPN inside. If WOL over VPN is not possible, then I'll leave a computer on inside the network that I will connect to and use to send out the WOL packet.

I know I need to enable broadcast to 10.10.10.255, but I don't know how.

VPN's only encrypt/decrypt unicast traffic, no broadcast or multicast.

Ok.

How then would I configure the router to accept broadcast traffic from inside the network? I will leave a PC on inside that will serve as my WOL machine.
