WAKE(8)                  BSD System Manager's Manual                   WAKE(8)

NAME

     wake - send Wake on LAN frames to hosts on a LAN

SYNOPSIS

     wake [interface] lladdr [lladdr ...]

DESCRIPTION

     The wake program is used to send Wake on LAN (WoL) frames over a local
     Ethernet network to one or more hosts using their link layer (hardware)
     addresses. WoL functionality is generally enabled in a machine's BIOS and
     can be used to power on machines from a remote system without having phy-
     sical access to them.

     If interface is an Ethernet interface of the local machine, it is used to
     send the Wake on LAN frames over it. Else wake uses the first Ethernet
     device found in the system. lladdr is the link layer address of the re-
     mote machine. This can be specified as the actual hardware address (six
     hexadecimal numbers separated by colons) or as a hostname entry in
     /etc/ethers. wake accepts multiple lladdr addresses. Link layer addresses
     can be determined and set using ifconfig(8).

FILES

     /etc/ethers  Ethernet host name data base.

SEE ALSO
