lots of ways to make a remote mac sleep. How do you get one to wake?

Wake On LAN
Authored by: Pi_ on Mar 31, '03 12:11:06PM

Ensure that the Wake For Network Admin Access is enabled in energy saver. Then you have to send a special packet to the MAC address. Google for "Wake on LAN" for a Unix program to do this :)

Wake On LAN -- through NAT router?
Authored by: ddldreaming on Mar 31, '03 08:56:08PM
Has anyone figured out how to make WoL work through a broadband router performing NAT hiding? I've tried through both an SMC Barricade and an Airport Base Station, forwarding various ports to the desired Mac (TCP port 9, which is the 'discard' port, is what's suggested most often on websites covering the subject), with no luck so far. I can ssh into my Mac remotely, once it's awake -- it's just a matter of getting that special ethernet packet repeated through the router.

A NAT router only does IP, wheras the WoL packet has to be at the Ethernet layer (below IP), so you can't send it through a router.

I have a Linux server I can always SSH to, and from there I can wake up the Mac. Except if the lid is closed... and my iMac pre-dates WoL on Macs... so I just leave the iMac on anyway.

Well, I'm able to wake my home machine from broadbandreports.com (http://www.broadbandreports.com/wakeup). According to traceroute, there are over 15 machines between them and my Mac.

So how's it work?

Use CTRL-D, "logout," or "exit." No quotes or commas for any of those commands, but I'm too lazy to write the HTML to make them look fancy. :)

If you are on Ethernet you may try WakeUp (http://www.coriolis.ch/article18.html).

You will need to know the Ethernet Address though...
