Hi,
I have no luck trying to wake up my server. The board has an 1Gb Realtek network interface on it.
I build a custom kernel using only the realtek options, and anything except wol runs fine.

with ethtool I can set eth0's settings and read them out. in conf.d/net I wrote
Code:
ifdown_eth0="no"
, in local.stop I wrote
Code:
/usr/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 wol g


When trying to wake the machine using /usr/bin/wakeonlan -i <IP> <MAC> it wouldn't wake up. I tried to leave out the -i option and reversed the MAC-adress with no luck.

What am I missing?

Thanks,
Rüdiger

For now, I assume I make a mistake somwhere, since another machine doesn't wake up as well
