I have Mandrake 9.2 setup on this PC. I want to WOL it from another Linux server. The Mdk PC currently has a 3c905B NIC in it with the WOL cable connected to the motherboard. I cannot for the life of me get this computer to remotely wake up. I need some ideas.
I have played with as many combinations as I can come up with of PNP in the bios, apm & acpi flags within the grub menu.lst, and even other NIC cards. This PC does successfully go all the way to powersave after a halt, and one light on the NIC always stays on. The Cisco 2948 switch it is connected to also has an appropriate activity light.
I have tried the wol command that came on my other SuSE box, as well as demoware W32 apps, all without success. On the SuSE box I run
wol <mac address>
wol --host <broadcast IP> <mac address>
and still get no response. I have triple checked the mac addy through local ifconfig, DHCP server logs, and the Cisco switch logged info. When both computers are up, they can ping each other.
Any ideas to get this work would be greatly appreciated. No idea too obvious.
