Auto wake?

  • I installed the WOL plugin but maybe I am confused.

    It seems, from the way I am interpreting the web gui for WOL, that OMV would send WOL packets TO the systems added in the plugin.

    Is this correct?

    Currently I have omv4 installed on an odroid hc2 connected to a ddwrt router that is also capable of WOL.

    The only circumstances I need omv running is tftp, nfs, smb access.

    For example, when the autoshutdown plugin suspends the nas, I want any activity (especially tftp) to bring omv out of suspend.

    Is wol on omv the answer here or should I look to ddwrt to intercept traffic destined for the omv and then send the wol packet on behalf of the systems?


  • The OMV WOL plugin has nothing to do with waking up an OMV that it is installed on. As you have correctly understood it, it is for waking up other systems.
