I have a new GNU/Linux Debian 9 server installation.
This is what I get from
root@web-server:~# ethtool enp2s0 Settings for enp2s0: Supported ports: [ TP MII ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full Supported pause frame use: No Supports auto-negotiation: Yes Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full Advertised pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes Link partner advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Full Link partner advertised pause frame use: Symmetric Receive-only Link partner advertised auto-negotiation: Yes Speed: 1000Mb/s Duplex: Full Port: MII PHYAD: 0 Transceiver: internal Auto-negotiation: on Supports Wake-on: pumbg Wake-on: g Current message level: 0x00000033 (51) drv probe ifdown ifup Link detected: yes
So, you see the Magic Packet is on (
I am waking this computer from power off state like this:
./wolcmd 00********** 192.168.0.104 255.255.255.0 7 # I've hidden the MAC address here
from Cygwin on Windows 10 using Depicus Wake On Lan Command Line.
What I do not understand is, why I need to specify the IP address and mask or port number?
Why is MAC address not enough? Could anyone elaborate...
