I want to turn on a server via WAKE UP ON LAN (WOL).
I tested a box with windows 95, and it was booted successfully via WOL (I use 'ether-wake' on other machine to send 'magic packet' to do WOL).
Then, I wiped the box, changed it to RedHat 8.0.
But then I cant boot it up via WOL ...
I did 'shutdown -h now' or 'poweroff', but because of this, the network card also turned off. If the network card turned off, the box can not be booted via WOL.
This is different with Windows 95, when I click shutdown, the box will be shutdowned but not the network card. The light in the network card still ON.
Is there any way to shutdown linux server and still make it to be bootable via WOL ?
