Next you need to note down the hardware address of the

the wakeonlan tool from the remote machine, try and get the desired machine
to boot. The hardware address can be found through ifconfig
wakeonlan <hardware add> (eg wakeonlan 00:16:76:12:64:97)
however i didn't have much luck myself, any pointers will be most welcome.
When the machine shuts down the corresponding light on the router is on so
im assuming the NIC is power on. however when i run wakeonlan
00:16:76:12:64:97 from another machine .. nothing happens.
etherwake always worked. Infact a setup from 2004 was working just the same
until last year. The setup was taken down as the server room was revamped.
The script was a simple oneliner.
