WOL by Command Line (wolcmd)


The command line tool wolcmd is run from a dos prompt. The syntax is as follows:
 
wolcmd [mac address] [ip address] [subnet mask] [port number]
 
you can also do a local broadcast if you are running on an internal network thus
 
wolcmd [macaddress] 255.255.255.255 255.255.255.255
 
where mac address is the unique address of the network card. To find the mac address of a card you can either open the computer and read the address on the sticker on the card or much easier is, if you are using TCP/IP, ping the machine from a dos prompt (ping [machine name or ip number] i.e. ping delphi or ping 10.43.43.43) then issue an arp command (arp -a) which will list the ip number and physical address of the card.
 
If the port number is not specified it will default to port 7
 
Running from a batch file
 
Simply add multiple entries thus:
 
wolcmd 009027a324fe 195.188.159.20 255.255.255.0 8900
wolcmd 009024a731da 212.86.64.31 255.255.255.0 8900

 
To run the batch file, say half an hour before everybody gets into work, use the AT command on a Windows NT computer.

The AT command schedules commands and programs to run on a computer at a specified time and date. The Schedule service must be running to use the AT command.
