The question of Wake-on-LAN has been around for a while. I typically respond. Long story short: Wake-on-LAN requires OS/NIC driver support. The OS puts the NIC in a mode at shutdown that allows Wake-on-LAN to work. FreeBSD has no Wake-on-LAN driver support, hence, no host running FreeBSD has Wake-on-LAN capabilities. I'm shocked that the Intel NICs don't have this support, given that Intel provides such excellent documentation and/or drivers for FreeBSD. Please search the archives. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
