  • Wake-On-Lan over WAN

    I have been trying to send the WOL magic packet over the WAN to wake up the computers in the remote office. I put the following config on our Cisco 2600 routers but it doesn't work as expected.

    ip forward-protocol udp 60000

    Did I miss anything?

    Do you have a server at the remote office? If so what I'd do is remote to it and use a program like Wake On Lan Gui to wake them up from the local subnet.

    Never tried it with a Cisco, but I have got WOL over the internet to work. You need a router that supports subnet directed broadcasts I.e. you need to be able to make a static mapping between MAC address and IP address on the router.

      To use a WOL program from the remote subnet is not a problem. What I am trying to accomplish is to send the magic packet udp 6000 over the WAN. So I can control WOL from one single location.

        Then you need to give every PC you want to wake up a static IP, your router must support subnet directed broadcasts, and you need to create a static ARP table on the router with every MAC address mapped to the appropriate IP address.
