boostmr2I saw that. Unfortunately, I've been given advice like this since June-July timeframe and held off on doing things that needed to get done because "This will be a new feature in K2". Can't wait any longer. So unless you are giving me K2 today, this is 100% unacceptable. Chances are I won't see it for another month or longer.
Does anyone know what network traffic would wake up a machine? I know pinging it directly does, however I have something that is waking these guys up and it's hard tracking what it is. If I find anything in the meantime i will let you know.
The magic packet is a broadcast frame containing anywhere within its payload: 6 bytes of ones (resulting in hexadecimal FF FF FF FF FF FF), followed by sixteen repetitions of the target computer's MAC address.
Since the magic packet is only scanned for the string above, and not actually parsed by a full protocol stack, it may be sent as a broadcast packet of any network- and transport-layer protocol. It is typically sent as a UDP datagram to port 0, 7 or 9, or, in former times, as an IPX packet.
