With two Intel nics 82579LM and 82574L (freenas recognizes as Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection) WakeOnLan? is not working correctly.
ifconfig -m lists wol compatibles:
capabilities=1399b<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWT AGGING,VLAN_HWCSUM,TSO4,WOL_UCAST,WOL_MCAST,WOL_MA GIC,VLAN_HWFILTER>
"ifconfig em0 wol_magic" and "ifconfig em0 wol" enables the wol support. I shut down the nas via "shutdown -p now" and try to wake up the system from a ubuntu linux again (with "etherwake" and some things like "wakeonlan -i 192.168.100.10 00:30:48:XX:XX:XX"
I could configure three different ways to power on the system via wol: WOL_MAGIC, WOL_MCAST and WOL_UNICAST. I tried them in different combinations.
WOL_MAGIC > no boot ->> not working
WOL_MAGIC,WOL_MCAST > boots direct after shutdown (without any command to boot the system) ->> not working
WOL_MAGIC,WOL_UNICAST > doesn´t wake up the box
The problem is that the preferred method (Magic_Packet) is completely not working. With MCAST the system boots immediately after shutdown.
There are a few posts in the forum (english and german) about WOL and nobody get it working correctly.
