I often find myself out of the office for work and with the need to access my lab remotely.
Because I hate wasting current, I normally leave on only my mini-server with Nethserver installed and, via WOL l activate what I need at the moment (QNAP nas, another self-made NAS with FreeNAS, whitebox ESXi etc.).
This function is already implemented in Nethserver, simply give the command via SSH:
# ether-wake -i <interface_name (eth0, eth1, etc.)> 00:22:68:5E:34:06 (MAC Address of device you want to activate)
It would be very convenient, and probably easy to implement a WOL management page , maybe under “Administration”.
For example, the MAC address management could be made through the page of the DNS host via an optional field.
Also, I think that this feature could be useful in the management of network backup, for example managing a script that wakes up the target, backing up and at the end of the task switch-off the target.
Do you think it is possible to implement a similar function?
Thank you in advance
