NAME
wol – send wake–on–lan Ethernet packet

SYNOPSIS
ip/wol [ –v ] [ –a dialstr ] [ –c password ] macaddr

DESCRIPTION
Wol sends a magic wake–on–lan Ethernet packet to dialstr (default udp!255.255.255.255!0, the IPv4 broadcast address), intended to wake up the machine with an Ethernet interface with the MAC address macaddr. Macaddr is not used to route the packet, but is inserted into the magic packet as required by the wake–on–lan protocol.

An optional password of at most six bytes can be sent. The option –v prints verbose information about the packet sent.
