WAKEONLAN(8)            NetBSD System Manager's Manual            WAKEONLAN(8)

NAME
     wakeonlan -- send Wake on LAN frames to hosts on a local Ethernet network

SYNOPSIS
     wakeonlan [interface] lladdr [lladdr ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The wakeonlan program is used to send Wake on LAN (WoL) frames over a
     local Ethernet network to one or more hosts using their link layer (hard-
     ware) addresses.  WoL functionality is generally enabled in a machine's
     BIOS and can be used to power on machines from a remote system without
     having physical access to them.

     interface is an Ethernet interface of the local machine and is used to
     send the Wake on LAN frames over it.  If there is only one Ethernet
     device available that is up and running, then the interface argument can
     be omitted.  lladdr is the link layer address of the remote machine.
     This can be specified as the actual hardware address (six hexadecimal
     numbers separated by colons) or as a hostname entry in /etc/ethers.
     wakeonlan accepts multiple lladdr addresses.  Link layer addresses can be
     determined and set using ifconfig(8).

FILES
     /etc/ethers  Ethernet host name data base.

SEE ALSO
     ethers(5), ifconfig(8)
