Hello, this is my first post, but i'll try to be as clear as possible.

 

General: I need to implement the ability to Wake on WAN, but the terminal is having trouble starting from Unicasted Magik Packets.

 

What Works: The terminal will always WOL when recieving Magik Packets broadcasted locally over the subnet, and sometimes wakes when recieving unicasted packets either locally or remotely.

 

Tests Done: Using the monitor at the provided link, it has been determined that the terminal always recieves the packets (either broadcasted or unicasted and locally or remotely) and they are correctly formatted Magik Packets. Also, from a number of trials, it appears that the terminal has a much higher chance of waking from unicasted Magik Packets (either locally or remotely) if the packets are sent immediately after a shutdown.

 

Summary: Does anyone know if there is a way to get the terminal to consistently accept wake commands from a Unicasted Magik Packet?

 

Relevant Hardware: Asus p7p55d

 

Solutions That Will Not Work: Router is not capable of forwarding incoming packets to subnet as a bypass to the problem.

Alright, I guess this means this isn't possible, thanks to anyone who thought about helping.

Are you trying to send WOL from the internet to turn on a pc?

Yes, that is what I am trying to do, sorry if that wasn't clear.
