My always on Linux machine is a dell FX 160, very low power consumption, should work as my VPN, asterisk server, and wake up other computers when i need them, the device itself is multi homed, So i basically need it to wake up other devices on one of the networks

The commands you need for this to work are as follows

etherwake -i eth1 xx:xx:D2:B2:30:C9 (My laptop)

eth1 is the network connected to my mini linux server that is connected to the target network.

Thats all there is to it, in addition to enabeling wake on lan in your BIOS
