Wake a Mac from a PC on Port 9
Authored by: MiStch on Jan 23, '05 06:11:05AM

The Wake on LAN tool works very well with my DSL-Modem (Zyxel 650ME). All I had to do is forwarding port 9 to my Mac's IP. It looks like: Forwarding port 9 to port 9 on (internal) IP address

Important: Make sure that from where you send your wake on LAN command, the firewall must let the command go through! (TCP-Port 9 must be open).
It did not work with other tools like Magic Packet send as it uses the UDP Port 9 instead of TCP. My DSL Modem does NOT forward any UDP commands. So this does not work.
