I have a WOL enabled motherboard and WOL enabled NIC, (Intel 82559 based )

I have the netcat program, running on linux server, and the WOL nic installed on another machine of course these two are networked.

My question is:

What kind of data should I send from the linux server to the WOL NIC so that it powers up the machine.

netcat is a nice tool because it can be called from shell scripts, but if netcat is not able to send such a datagram, another linux tool will be welcomed :)
