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.
