Been using WOL on -STABLE since 7.0 I believe [not sure] Currently using WOL on fxp and vr cards [which wiki lists as supported] /usr/ports/net/wol and then: wol -vi 172.20.6.255 00:30:6e:11:f8:45 this box was both public IP and private IP - If I do a wol broadcast on 255.255.255.255 it will not wake up the other box, plugged into same switch - but doing broadcast on local subnet wakes it up.... any ideas? I do have an nvidia card, if I boot the bios/POST ONLY, and not let it go into FreeBSD [hard power off at boot prompt], WOL works [via BIOS]. If I boot up FreeBSD, do graceful shutdown WOL no longer works. ]Peter[ _______________________________________________ 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"
