Need help on how to use WOL to start my server

    When we have a power failure, everything goes down includes my Tomato router and my home server. When power resumed, the router will power on but not the server. If I am not home, I can still login the router remotely via https then use WOL to start the server.

    But I really want the server can be started automatically after power resumed. So I think I might able to write a script in the Tomato router (maybe in WAN UP) then use some command to send wake up signal to my server.

    Could someone help me to write the command? I don't know how to write the command (or script)

    Thanks a lot.

    Maybe something like this in your Init area (under Administration, scripts)....

    sleep 5
    etherwake xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

    Where xx.... = MAC address of server?
