I need advice on getting WOL Magic Packets through my RV082 from the Internet. Because this router will not allow forwarding to the broadcast address of 192.168.1.255 (â€œout of rangeâ€ error), I made an arp entry in the routerâ€™s shell and now â€œarp â€“vnâ€ displays what I believe are the proper settings: 192.168.1.254 ether FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF CM ixp0 After doing that the magic packet still wouldn't go through the router. I'm using Depicus' WOL Monitor to tell me if the packet is reaching my subnet (in addition to simply seeing if the target PC wakes up). In the RV082 I set up forwarding of UDP port 9 to 192.168.1.254. My router's address is 192.168.1.1. The subnet is 255.255.255.0. I created a dyndns.org address, which I've tested and know that I'm able to reach my LAN via that FQDN. Then I used the routerâ€™s logging function to see if there was any evidence of the packets arriving. There was: it said they were rejected because of some sort of policy setting. Thatâ€™s when I went into the routerâ€™s â€œFirewallâ€ general settings and disabled â€œBlock WAN Requestâ€. I also created an Access Rule to allow any source to send to 192.168.1.254 through port 2304. (I also changed the aforementioned forwarding rule to forward UDP port 2304 to 192.168.1.254.) These two steps are purely stabs in the dark. (Why did I change to port 2304? I started using Wireshark to examine network activity when running the various WOL â€œpacket sendersâ€ (e.g. Depicus' WOLGUI, WOL.exe from Simply-ware.com, etc.). I noticed that each seems to send to a different port, and not always the 7 or 9 like one might assume. I also found that the aforementioned WOL.exe is able to wake up the target PC whether I gave it the PCâ€™s local IP address or my DynDNS FQDN. So Iâ€™m pretty sure Wireshark says WOL.exe is using port 2304.) Anyway, now I can actually wake up the target PC using WOL.exe, but I have a feeling itâ€™s because Iâ€™m testing this from another PC on my LAN so that the target PC is receiving the broadcast packet locally. I need to find another location off-site to try sending the packets from but Iâ€™d appreciate advice on whether my changes to the RV082â€™s Firewall settings are needed AND if they present any great liability (thereâ€™s no point in using them if they have no bearing on letting Magic Packets get through.) Of course, if this info helps any other readers seeking guidance getting WOL to work via the Internet, I think I'm on the right track so I hope it helps you. If any readers with expertise in this subject want to add some advice, please do so!
