I’m new to FOG and I am trying to set-up WOL to work across multiple different computers. I am currently attempting to get WOL to work on one computer.
I have been able to get the computer to Wake-Up using two applications (WakeOnLan & WakeMeOnLan). I want to get the WOL on fog to work however it isn’t. I was able to get it to work after adding the WOL Broadcast plugin but that requires the IP which won’t work when I need to do it across several computers with different IPs. Will I have to go through
My Fog Server is running at 10.133.xxx.xx and the test computer is running at. 10.20.xxx.xxx. I would appreciate any tips or guidance. All the other computers I would like to wake will also be on the 10.20.xxx.xxx subnet.
@AisleWay Just replying to see if anyone might have any ideas.
@AisleWay The WOL Broadcast plugin is designed specifically for your use case.
Seeing as fog server is running on 10.133.x.x, the WOL packets are restricted (by default) to that particular subnet.
If you add the broadcast of 10.20.x.x to the plugin, it will send there.
If you need it to go to 10.10.x.x, add it to the plugin and wol will send via that as well.
Not sure what else we can provide.
This seems, to me, to indicate that the other networks are separated.
10.x.x.x is generally the whole scope, (10.0.0.0/8) but you have your network broken into seperated subnets.
If all systems in your network is in the 10.x.x.x scope, why the separation when you want not to have to worry about what network to send across?
