Wake-On-LAN (WOL) Support on Dell Servers
This paper provides step-by-step instructions for using Wake-On-LAN (WOL) with Dell Servers. Wake-On-LAN allows a server to be remotely powered on. Wake-On-LAN technology resides in a server's managed Network Interface Card (NIC) and/or in a LAN-On-Motherboard (LOM) integrated network connection. When a WOL enabled system is placed in a power saving mode (hibernate, standby, power off, etc...), the managed NIC or LOM uses the auxiliary power source to monitor the network and receive a wake-up packet. When a wake-up packet is received, the system powers up as normal.
