WOL

Hello,

 

we have a 3Com S7906E with 20 Vlan and IP Subnet. Now we will make WOL from one IP Segment to a other .

 

We must make IP forwarding but nothing works.

 

What must we make ?

Re: WOL

Hi,

 

I have not been able to verify this, but this should be config based on the configuration guide:

system-view

 ip forward-broadcast

int vlan 15

 ip forward-broadcast

 # above can be filtered with optional ACL

 

Next, use a subnet directed broadcast for the destination IP.

For example, the management host is in subnet 10.1.10.0/24 with ip 10.1.10.15 and you want to trigger a WOL in for a host which is connected on the 10.1.20.0/24 subnet.

In the WOL tool, you should use destination ip 10.1.20.255 (the subnet broadcast). The routing switch will now accept the broadcast (due to config), and transmit the request as a broadcast in the vlan, so the packet will be received by all vlan 20 hosts, including the target system.

 

Let us know if it works,

 

Best regards,Peter
