NAMEetherwake - A tool to send a Wake-On-LAN "Magic Packet"
SYNOPSISetherwake [options] Host-ID
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents the usage of the ether-wake command.
etherwake is a program that generates and transmits a Wake-On-LAN (WOL) "Magic Packet", used for restarting machines that have been soft-powered-down (ACPI D3-warm state). It generates the standard AMD Magic Packet format, optionally with a password included. The single required parameter is a station (MAC) address or a host ID that can be translated to a MAC address by an ethers(5) database specified in nsswitch.conf(5)
OPTIONSetherwake needs a single dash ('-') in front of options. A summary of options is included below.
- Send the wake-up packet to the broadcast address.
- 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 a few adapters
need or support this. A six byte password may be specified in Ethernet hex
format (00:22:44:66:88:aa) or four byte dotted decimal (192.168.1.1) format.
A four byte password must use the dotted decimal format.
