WOL not working

  • I recently installed OMV 5.5 on my machine and can't figure it out why Wake on Lan is not working, I hope you guys can help me.


    On GUI interface Wake on Lan is activated.


    on ethanol it shows the following message:

    So I think it is all right here too


    And in my BIOS I have PCI wake on activated


    Am I missing some thing?


    I'm sending the wake on LAN message from my Iphone or from my Mac and I know the packet is been send cause i checked with WireShark.

    The machine is completely off and it should power on right ? or should it be at a step state so I can power it on ?

  • What do you mean with this?

    The machine should be shut down from the GUI of OMV or from terminal.

    If you disconnect the machine from the power supply, WOL will not work.

    I mean shut down by GUI like you said, turns out it was the apps that I was using on both Iphone and Mac, I downloaded another apps and it worked. Thank you so much for the help.


    In case someone need to do the same, the apps that worked for me.

    Iphone: https://apps.apple.com/br/app/…-on-lan/id1118231258?l=en

  • Turns out its the way you shutdown the server that I was doing wrong now I'm using #halt -p and I can turn it on when I need
