[WOL] Wake-on-LAN

Post by rednoah »

WOL (Wake-on-LAN) can be used to turn on a device remotely via its network interface by sending a specifically crafted datagram packet to all devices on the local network.


FileBot Scripting provides a wol() function that can be used like so to turn on a series of devices on command:

Shell: Select all

#!/usr/bin/env -S filebot -script

wol '24-5E-32-AD-62-8C'
wol '00-11-EB-61-23-E7'
(requires FileBot r10323 or higher)
