This may be a really stupid question, but I can't wake my obsd
machines using WOL. It seems like such a simple problem, but I
haven't been able to find a solution.
The machines I've tested with are running OpenBSD 3.4 and 3.6. They
are all Dell GX110 hardware that includes an integrated xl NIC. The
BIOS indicates that WOL is enabled for the onboard nics. The link
light remains active on the back of the nic and on the switches and
hubs I've tested with when the machine is powered down.
I've tried using the wol program from ports as well as the perl
net::wake module and nothing wakes these suckers up.
I know that the developers don't think much of the xl cards or
drivers, so maybe this is a hardware/driver problem. Is there some
issue where OpenBSD doesn't support acpi or some other standard that
is needed for WOL, but just assumed by all the WOL docs out there?
Everything i've found just says make sure wol is enabled, make sure
link light is on, and send the magic packet... thats it.
Some BIOSes require you to enable wol, as well as specify it as an ACPI
Works with my junk.
