WOL(8)                                                     WOL(8)

     NAME
          wol - send wake-on-lan Ethernet packet

     SYNOPSIS
          ip/wol [ -v ] [ -a dialstr ] [ -c password ] macaddr

     DESCRIPTION
          Wol sends a magic wake-on-lan Ethernet packet to dialstr
          (default udp!255.255.255.255!0, the IPv4 broadcast address),
          intended to wake up the machine with an Ethernet interface
          with the MAC address macaddr. Macaddr is not used to route
          the packet, but is inserted into the magic packet as
          required by the wake-on-lan protocol.

          An optional password of at most six bytes can be sent.  The
          option -v prints verbose information about the packet sent.
