etherwake



SYNOPSIS

       etherwake [options] MAC-Address


DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the etherwake commands.

       etherwake is a program that generates and transmits  Wake-
       On-LAN  (WOL) "Magic Packet", used for restarting machines
       that have been soft-powered-down (ACPI D3-warm state).  It
       currently  generates the standard AMD Magic Packet format,
       with an optinonal password appended.


OPTIONS

       etherwake needs a  single  dash  (´-´)  in  front  of  the
       option.  A summary of options is included below.

       -b     Send wake-up packet to the broadcast address.

       -D     Increase the Debug Level.

       -i ifname
              Use interface ifname instead of the default "eth0".

       -p passwd
              Append a four or six byte password to  the  packet.
              Only  very  few  adapters need or support this. The
              password may be also specified in ethernet hex for­
              mat    (00:22:44:66:88:aa)    or   dotted   decimal
              (192.168.1.1).


SEE ALSO

       arp(8).


KNOWN BUGS

       On some systems dropping root capability allows  the  pro­
       cess  to be dumped, traced or debugged.  If someone traces
       this program, they get control of  a  raw  socket.   Linux
       handles this safely, but beware when porting this program.

       source.
