    Best WOL (Wake On Lan) tool?

    Hey. I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations in regards to WOL-software.

    I'm looking for some kind setup where I can assign entire IP-ranges to be woken up, give them a designation and save them for later use. Any ideas?

    I use a perl script - wake.pl.
    It can read all the machines to be sent WoL commands from a file.
    Don't recall where I found the script - google found this: http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/S/SR/SRAMKI/wol.pl at CPAN - THE place for perl stuff. I haven't used that script myself. This version is missing the all important - get-inputs-from-a-file.

    Next google result ... ah ... http://www.han.de/~gero/netboot/archive/msg02524.html is the one I've been using.

    you could switch your router to dd-wrt firmware then just put a checkmark next to whatever computer hostname you want to enable wake on lan for and then wake them up from the web interface.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Eh, I use a shell script based off of wakeonlan for that.

    I used the howto here, then use gwakeonlan to start the sleeping systems.

    Ditto.

    Code:
    wakeonlan -f /path/to/list/of/mac-addresses
