[SOLVED] How to wake a node with WOL from another machine in the same network?


Jan 13, 2022
I successfully configured the server itself for WOL with a systemd service that sets the cards WOL capability to `g` for Magic Packet. I had to do this because my (old consumer) motherboard did not have an option to enable WOL itself.

However, I now wonder how to enable the WOL for a guest node on the server. I read articles about clicking right and then chosing WOL from the context menu, but I don't have this option. Do I have to enable this somewhere in general before having the option per node? Thanks!
