Smile etherwake (solved)


Hi again, getting tied up in knots about trying to setup etherwake on my network.

I have a network server which I will be sharing with some of my friends. I would like them to be able to send magic packets to wake it up and shut it down when they like.

I thought I'd install etherwake on a network computer to test if I can wol. The server has wol capabilities and it is set to do so.

I just can't seem to get going with the commands?

Had anyone experience with this software and can give me some practical examples on how I can set up etherwake?

As always, any help will be much appreciated.

This is a little update on the previous post.

If I try to send magic packet from inside my network to the server, I get the following:

Quote:

ether-wake: The Magic Packet host address must be specified as
- a station address, 00:11:22:33:44:55, or
- a hostname with a known 'ethers' entry.


I don't know what to do with this info? I have specified the right mac address?

Has everybody gone on holiday

I have been checking some settings on my network card to make sure that it is setup for wol.


This is the readout from: # ifconfig eth1 | grep HWaddr



Quote:
root@SIMSON:/home/bookie# ethtool eth1
Settings for eth1:
Supported ports: [ TP ]
Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
1000baseT/Full
Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
Advertised link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
1000baseT/Full
Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
Speed: 100Mb/s
Duplex: Full
Port: Twisted Pair
PHYAD: 0
Transceiver: internal
Auto-negotiation: on
Supports Wake-on: pumbg
Wake-on: g
Current message level: 0x00000033 (51)
Link detected: yes



It seems set to wake on Lan. This is a work in progress, so bear with me.

I am still trying to figure out how things need to be set up, so if anyone has ideas to run by me - then by almeans do that


just looking on making sure that wol is loaded on boot and how I shutdown from a remote computer without killing everything stone dead

There is a lot of info out there but takes time to sift through it all.

Add a file called /etc/ethers and place in it the hosts you want to wakeup. Here's the format.

<mac_addr> <ip_addr or hostname>
<mac_addr> <ip_addr or hostname>

The manpage has more info.

man ethers

To use hostnames instead of ip_addrs in /etc/ethers, add an entry for each host in /etc/hosts. (man hosts)

I have never messed with WOL but from doing a little googling I found one site that mentioned that typically the linux module disables WOL. Use this command to enable:
ethtool -s eth0 wol g

WOL will be reset at boot up but where to stick the command is slightly OS dependent. For RH based distros rc.local is a good place.

Thanks a lot for stopping by guys. I will have a look at your info and get back to you when I have tested it.

One thing I did notice yesterday I had to connect the network card manually to the motherboard with a 3pin wire for wol

Did say this was a work in progress

Thanks again will be in touch.

Hi guys, can't say that I have any good news Your info helped with setup but that doesn't seem to be my problem now.

I have installed Debris a little distro based on Debian/Ubuntu to save ram and resources on my server - plus I like to test things.

I have been googling my arse off for the last few days trying to find info on my motherboard and came across a post about no support for the wol in 2.6.24.14. My Debris version is based on that kernel and is the 7.10 Gutsy version.

The long and short of this is I might have to wait for an update from Debris, rebuild my kernel, change my distro or just

Haven't decided what to do yet

I am going to have a rethink and have a nervous breakdown.


Thanks again for your help. I will post when I get this sorted out and let you know what route I took.

What is the device (NIC) you're trying to get to respond to magic packets? Please provide the output of these commands (executed as root) from the system you're trying to wakeup:

uname -a
lsmod
lspci -vvxxx

Hi jcliburn

Thanks for coming round again! Didn't expect to see any one for a while

The network card is a D-link Dge-528t as listed in lspci -wxxx


Anyway, the readouts are as follows:

Well, the first thing I noticed is that the motherboard or bios seems capable for power management version 1 and the network card version 2?


I didn't notice anything else, but I am still learning the info that these readouts give.

Hope that helps you with my problem

Okay, your DLINK NIC uses the Linux r8169 driver. I have some NICs that use that driver, and WOL works fine, so that absolves the driver of culpability, I think.

Have you checked your BIOS configuration to make sure you've enabled the "wake from PCI device" or similar?

Sorry jcliburn been a little busy of late. Thought I'd give you all my settings for the server regarding Power Managment setup in bios.


ACPI Function Enabled
ACPI Suspend Type S3 (STR)
Power Management User Defined
Video Off Method DPMS
Video Off Suspend Yes
Suspend Type Stop Grant
Modem Use Irq 3
Suspend Mode Disabled
HDD PowerDown Disabled
Soft-Off-By PWR Button instant OFF
Wake-up by Pci card Disabled
Power on by Modem Disabled
Wake-up On Lan Enabled
USB KB wake-up from s3 Disabled
Cpu Thermal Throttling 50.0%
Power on by Alarm Disabled

And that is all my settings. I can change them if need of course.

Hope you have some suggestions.

Hi again, I have enabled Enable "Wake-up by PCI card" as you have stated. I have now tested it but still can't wake up the computer.

I appreciate all the help I have had - but will start a new thread incase it is related to the kernel.

Thanks again,

bookie

Well, this is to inform you of success!!!

I have been googling my arse off as usual and came accross this thread at Ubuntu:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ght=wol+server



I followed the manual settings....remember that my Debris is Ubuntu based...it needed a simple init script as written in the above link. When done I tested it inside my network and it worked like a dream. Even if I use halt now it still can be woken and that is brilliant.

I will be adding these comments to the new thread started relating to Debris.

Thanks again!!

bookie
