    Thumbs up WakeOnLan/Mount/Shutdown Plugin

    New 1.0/2.5.2010 WakeOnLan/Mount/Shutdown Plugin
    What is the main function of WakeOnLan/Mount/Shutdown plugin ?

    This Plugin supports the remote power on, power off, mount and
    unmount of a fileserver or an other dreambox manualy over the
    remote control or on boot and schutdown of the dreambox.

    Which requieries are important ?

    - To start a coumputer remotly. You need wake on lan.
    If you will put on your remote computer, the BIOS and your
    networkinterface have to support wake on lan. I'm not shure,
    if the dremboxes support wake on lan. My 7025 does not

    Which components would be installed ?

    On The dreamboxes and the fileservers a deamon/service
    would be executed, to check if the remote computer is
    online and shutdown the remote computer.

    Additional on the dreambox works a plugin to control
    the remote comupers.

    How works the WakeOnLan/Shutdown plugin installation ?

    Installation on a dreambox:

    0. download and copy wakelan_1.1-r2_mipsel.ipk und wol_1.0_mipsel.ipk
    heruntladen to nach /tmp
    1. Make a telnet login
    2. ipkg install /tmp/install wakelan_1.1-r2_mipsel.ipk
    3. ipkg install /tmp/wol_1.0_mipsel.ipk
    4. reboot

    Installation on a linuxserver:

    0. download and copy wol.gz to /tmp
    1. Make a telnet/ssh einloggen or open a terminal on your
    graphical desktop
    2. cd /
    3. tar -xjvf /tmp/wol.gz
    4. reboot

    Installation on WindowsXP,2000, usw.

    1. WakeOnLanSetup.msi herunterladen
    2. Im Dateimanager WakeOnLanSetup.msi starten
    3. Windiws neustarten

    How can I configure the plugin ?

    On the Linux/Windows server is no more configuration

    Configuration on a Dreambox:

    The configuration works with the wol.config command on
    a telnet session. Enter simply wol.conf.

    First you add a new remotecomputer. You need a
    computername, the IP address and the MAC address.
    You decide additionaly, if you wan't to put on or off this
    computer remotly during boot and shutdown of the dreambox.
    Optionaly you can add a remote NFS/SAMBA filesystem.

    Haw can I calc the MAC address:

    Linux: On a telnet session put in ifconfig.

    Windows: Klick on start-execute, put in cmd and execute,
    and put in "ipconfig /all"

    How can I check the configuration ?

    1. Make a telnet login
    2. wolctl isonline <Remotecomputername>

    If the remote computer is online, wolctl says "Server (<remote computername>) is online"
    If the remote computer is offline, wolctl says "Server (rRemote computername>) is offline"

    If the remote comuputer is online and wolctl says this computer is offline, then put
    off your firewall shortly. Make a new online check. If the check works, put on
    your firewall and open the port 25255 on the firewall for your local network. It's
    important to check if this port is closed on the internet.

    On the blue key of your remote control, you can check if the remote schutdown and
    wake request works fine.

    if the wake up request does'n work:

    1. Check MAC-Adresse.
    2. Check BIOS settings.
    3. You can put a wake on lan request, with the following telnet command:
    wakelan -m <MAC-Adresse, z.B. 00:A9:35:2B:C5:F0>

    On Linux you can check the Wake On Lan posibilty with the following
    telnet command:

    ethtool eth0

    The following output tells you that the Networkinterface supports wake on lan:

    Supports Wake-on: pumbg
    Wake-on: g

    How can I cancel a remote shutdown request ?

    When the dreambox a remote shutdown request sends you have 5 minutes
    to stop the shutdown request.

    On Linux the telnet command "shutdown -c" stops the shutdown request.

    On Windows execute with start->execute the cmd command and put in
    shutdown -a or you can add a link "Cancel Shutdown" on the desktop
    with the following command: "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -a"

    Have many success
    Tnx Aladin
