This plugin provides a wrapper around the "wakeonlan" tool available from most distributions' package repositories, or from the following website: http://gsd.di.uminho.pt/jpo/software/wakeonlan/ In order to use this wrapper, create the ~/.wakeonlan directory, and place in that directory one file for each device you would like to be able to wake. Give the file a name that describes the device, such as its hostname. Each file should contain a line with the mac address of the target device and the network broadcast address. For instance, there might be a file ~/.wakeonlan/leto with the following contents: 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 192.168.0.255 To wake that device, use the following command: # wake leto The available device names will be autocompleted, so: # wake <tab> ...will suggest "leto", along with any other configuration files that were placed in the ~/.wakeonlan directory. For more information regarding the configuration file format, check the wakeonlan man page.
