Sorry, I only read your last post when I replied.





After i said this :

Quote:
william@william-GA-78LMT-USB3:~$ sudo etherwake 00:e0:4c:e9:96:a7
SIOCGIFHWADDR on eth0 failed: No such device


I ran sudo poweroff on the machine I wanted to wake.

Is Wakeonlan intended to switch PC's on from a position like that?

there was a 10hr gap until your next post.

I've tried to get Wakeonlan to work numerous times, failed and when I ask for help on mersenneforums, everyone gives up on me.

By the time i read your reply, the router the machine to wake was plugged into was in my kitchen half-stuck with drying glue to a piece of perspex which I intend to drill holes in so I can screw to my desk (in an attempt to be organised).

Consequently the situation had changed.

I got to figure out why I do that.

No problem. I should learn not to take people's questions seriously. Most are simply trolling....

Default Ethernet interface name?

Sorry if I'm raising a dead thread here, but this was one of the first results to come up for me when googling this same issue. I made an account to offer what worked for me in case someone out there had the same issue:

My ethernet interface on my source device that was serving up the WOL packet was not named "eth0"; this is the default interface name that etherwake uses however. Using ifconfig to get my ethernet interface's correct name, and looking at switches for etherwake on it's man page, my command to wake my device ended up looking like this:

etherwake -i [correct interface name] -D [destination mac address]

Hope that helps someone out there. Sorry if I broke any rules I'm new here.
