    Wake on lan

    I'm new to Proxmox and recently installed it on the same PC where Ubuntu was running smoothly with Wake-on-LAN functional. However, after installing Proxmox, WOL seems to have stopped working. Are there any specific settings within Proxmox that need adjustment to restore WOL functionality?

    WOL or MQTT Wakeup/Stop Backup server

    To avoid being easily hacked and to save power, my backup storage device should power on and shut down by the Proxmox backup scripts. It would be great if the backup script on Proxmox could power on and off external devices. Best to do via WOL (Wakeup On Lan) and/or MQTT/TASMOTA. Simply turn...

    WOL not working AFTER 2nd shutdown

    Hey guys, I've got a weird one here. As the title states. WOL works just fine. After I shut it down using the GUI and try again, WOL does NOT work until after I unplug/replug the power cord. MOBO: Asrock TRX40 Creator. Ideally, I'd only use the 2.5G LAN for WOl and the 10G Lan for all data...

    Hallo, wo kann ich es denn eingeben, dass der Proxmox-Server bei der Unterschreitung einer bestimmten CPU-Last herunterfährt? Ich möchte den Server zum Spiele- und Programme-Streamen nutzen.

    Wake on LAN behind pfSense

    [update] Wake (and other) on LAN for VMs (v0.3)

    (EDITED) I ever wondered why there's no solution to startup VMs by WOL 'til now, so I helped myself and wrote a bash script that I want to share. I called this baby dosthol (Do something on LAN) which will do other tasks some day, i.E. remote shutdown and others. Maybe someone will find this...
