Which Wake-On-Lan software on pfSense?
« on: November 19, 2017, 11:09:03 am »
Hi there,
I though of creating a script on my pfSense box that listens out for WoL packets and if it hasn't received one for x amount of minutes I want it to shut down.

Would anybody happen to know what "software", or package pfSense comes with that handles sending and receiving WoL packets?

Thank you.

pfSense uses wol ( https://www.freshports.org/net/wol/ ) to send wol packets. It doesn't have a daemon to listen for them.
