wake(8), a New Wake-on-LAN Command

June 26, 2009 posted by Marc Balmer

wake is a new command to send Wake-on-LAN frames over an ethernet to Wake-on-LAN capable machines, remote powering them up. This functionality is generally enabled in a machine's BIOS and can be used to power on machines from a remote system without having physical access to them.

wake is available in NetBSD-current. See the wake(8) manual page for details.
