Re: Wake on Lan Issues
Hmmm....I guess no one here uses the WOL utilities from pkgsrc? Bummer.

I'm trying to use DragonFlyBSD to wake up other machines, but so far two
of the utilities I tried from pkgsrc didn't work. I hate saying this,
but they do wake up when I send the magic packet from a Windows machine
using either AMD's magic_pkt program or this other program called mc-wol
(or something like that - I had renamed it to wol).
Anyway, I tried net/wol and net/wakeup but neither worked. I was
wondering if anyone can reproduce this behavior with machines on thier
network. Those two programs compile fine, but they just don't seem to
work for me.
On a bright note, I configured my DragonFlyBSD box to WOL. Yay!
Although, I have to wake it from a Windows box for now until I can
figure out what's up with WOL utilities on DragonFlyBSD.
Well, any help would be appreciated.
