Sending magic packet (WOL) from proxmox hosted lxc container to outside physical computer


Sep 12, 2019
Hi there,

I am trying to send magic packet from either a LXC or QEMU machine hosted on proxmox to a physical machine on another lan, but it looks like the magic packet does not go farther than the proxmox host.
The target phy machine is on another lan
I sniffed packet using wireshark on my own computer and I do not see the m packet when it is sent from a proxmox hosted machine, when I send it from a physical machine I can see it, this led me thinking that lxc / qemu or even proxmox phy host needs some config, is that so ?
