Hello folks. I have a couple of questions about Wake on Lan
support and NetBSD.
1. What, if any, support is needed in NetBSD for WOL? If WOL is enabled
in the BIOS of a machine running NetBSD, do packets which cause the machine
to wake up cause it to reboot or come out of sleep in a booted and running
2. I see a program written by Donald Becker for Linux lets you send WOL
packets from a Linux machine to wake up other machines. Has anyone ported
this, or written another program like it, for NetBSD?
