The wol package
A program and library to a send WoL Magic Packet, to remotely start a computer.
This program is useful if you have a computer that you keep at a friend's house because he has a fast internet connection. But he keeps turning the machine off, saying that it warms up his room and your not using it anyway. But now you need a way to turn the machine back on...
$ wol hostname macaddress [portnumber]
If the hostname is not statically known, you can try using LAN broadcast (255.255.255.255).
