Re: Magic Packets/WOL

Yes, Frank, that helped. Lots of great advice on this thread

 

I had seen that setting in some of the nic properties, but I never thought to change it.

 

It indeed enabled some of the computers to work.  Probably the other computers need a driver update to access the setting.

 

We have so many different models here that is it going to be a long trip.

 

This advice isn't generally around the internet.

Thanks

Re: Magic Packets/WOL

Hi

ip directed-broadcast -apparently- allows wol across vlans on the HP switches.

Yes, but it also opens the door for abuse. If not protected per vlan or acl, smurf attacks among other things are possible.

Hope it helps.

luckily, I don't need that command.  Works without it..  As least if you have a realtek nic, the intel ones still don't like it so far.

Hi

On HPE Aruba AFAIK ip directed-broadcast is on by default on some firmware version. So maybe that’s why you didn’t need to turn it on. It’s on by default.
