Wake on Lan da riga di comando

Per accendere un computer dotato di sistema Wak On Lan da console utilizzando una distro openSUSE, bisogna prima di tutto installare il pacchetto wol con Yast, poi da riga di comando:

nico # wol -v xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx




-v sta per verbose e xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx è il mac address della scheda di rete a cui viene indirizzato il comando di Wake On Lane.
