Aol (Alert on Lan) on linux?


I am creating a custom power down dialog. while researching Wol(Wake on Lan) i came across Aol (Access on Lan) which allows remote maintainance. I wonder if, may i want to include it along Wol, have to actually include anything in my code like with Wol where you have to tell the computer before shutdown that it should listen for Magic packets.

i have never used it and i could not find much on the internet, so does anyone have an idea if it is just a bios setting or if you have to switch it on in the os. and if that is the case is it possible on linux?

I found a PDF that might be helpful. https://vpro.by/files/alert-on-lan-2.pdf

I apologize if you have already found it.

Since it dates back to 1998 I'm not surprised there isn't much information. Looks like there were only a few ethernet adapter that supported AoL i.e Intel PRO/100+, 82559 Fast Ethernet and the IBM EtherJet. Since it was an IBM, Intel joint venture I would suspect that unless you have an IBM machine from that era with one of the supported adapters that it isn't possible.

I was thinking of a more modern solution like IPMI that is typically found in server platforms and it appears that it was also first developed in 1998.

thanks for the info. i thought it might be some obscure standard that is implemented in all hardware but never used. but it really seems like there is no support in linux and not much compatible hardware anyway.
