    ok, here's my rc_Startup script:

    while [ $i -le 30240 ]
    sleep 20
    i=`expr $i + 1`
    wget http://xxx.de/pc-1-on -O /tmp/pc-1-on
    wget http://xxx.de/pc-2-on -O /tmp/pc-2-on
    PC=`cat /tmp/pc-1-on`
    PC2=`cat /tmp/pc-2-on`
    /usr/sbin/wol -h $PC
    /usr/sbin/wol -h $PC2
    rm pc-1-on
    rm pc-2-on
    exit 0

    thr problem is: after one day, i have hundreds of processes running, called check_ps, which are flooding the memory until I can't even login because, there's no memory left to start a shell.
    since wol packets don't seem to be routeable with iptables, I use this way, because for SSH I would have to put the private-key on my server, without a password, to open a ssh-session via script

    btw, I use this script to wake up my pc's by visiting a website with a php-script, really easy
