WOL packet over VPN
Posted on 2014-01-02
Hello, I have a VPN connecting my home network to a remote domain I'm admin of.
So, my home network has a 192.168.2.xxx structure, the remote domain 192.168.1.xxx.
Windows Server SBS 2011 is installed on the main remote server, W7 Ultimate on my work pc.
I have been trying to use WOL directly from my work pc, but it doesn't work. It only works if I enter the remote server with RDP (or Teamviewer or VNC...) and execute the command from there.
I am using a free command-line utility called wolcmd, here's an example of a command which works locally but not remotely:
WolCmd D0-17-38-2F-AF-E1 192.168.1.34 255.255.255.0 21234
So I was wondering, is there a way to make this work via VPN or should I just let it go?
Thanks in advance guys.
