Wake On LAN

3 posts in this topic

Hi

WOL is nicely working on win2003 server.

But when I try to wake the client's machine from win2008serverR2 (sending magic packets from 2008Server to other machine) its not waking up.

I did some research on that and got to know-

-> before installing Active Dir on 2008server it is waking up other machine nicely.

-> As I install AD on it, WOL got failed.

Is there some policy needed to be set or any other setting to be done to solve the problem?

Thanks & Regards

Madan

Are you sure the windows 2008 R2 firewall is configured properly to allow sending WOL packet (i.e: allow sending udp packet on port 7/9) ?

Hi,

The problem is not due to firewall.

I see there are two n/w adapters in my server machine and both are enable. I disable one (which is not in use) and try WOL again... Its working now.

But this is not a permanent solution and there may be need to enable it in future.

Can I modify magic packet in such a way so that the problem get resolved?

Any idea?

Thanks

Madan
