» Wake On Lan - Magic Packet

PyGTK-based tool for sending broadcast frame called Magic Packet to turn on a computer remotely (tested in local networks and Internet). The program uses remote or local Top-level Domains list downloaded from IANA to validate the FQDN (can be updated by --update-tlds option).

There are two ways to use Wake On LAN over Internet:

  1. You can send Magic Packet directly to broadcast address. For example will sent MP to
  2. If the computer is behind NAT you'll need a special iproute2 and iptables rules to forward broadcast messages.




Above example will work for is an unused IP, eth1 - WAN interface, eth0 - LAN. iproute2 assigns address to MAC ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff. iptables forwards received packets from port 48777 to - this address has assigned the broadcast MAC, so all packets will be sent to every computer in LAN.
