based on my research it seems that in order to have a successful deployment of WOL I would need minimal of the following.
1. the L3 device where the server is attached, enable ip forward-protocol.
2. the L3 interface where the server is connected needs ip helper-address. this helper address should be the broadcast address of the client PC network.
3. the L3 interface where the client PC is connected needs ip directed-broadcast.
my question regarding item #2.
what happen if I have hundreds of client networks span across the private WAN. do I need to configure each and everyone of their network broadcast address as ip helper-address? if not, what are my alternatives?
I am not aware that there is any other workable alternative. I agree that this solution does not scale well. But as far as I know there is no workable alternative other than an ip helper-address for each of the remote subnets.
