Wake on LAN

The wake_on_lan device controller sends a WOL package to a computer on the local LAN when the device receives an "on" even. To do so, it needs the MAC adress for the machine.

Config example

/etc/opt/agocontrol/conf.d/wake_on_lan.conf

[wake_on_lan]
debug=false
polltime=300

[Computers]
        DCErouter
        name=DCErouter
        mac=01:14:DD:D1:B9:5D
        host=dcerouter

        Test
        name=test
        mac=00:01:02:03:04:FF
        host=192.168.1.1

N.B. Some wiki formatting errors here - the DCErouter and test parts should be embaced with double square brackets (i.e. two [ before and two ] after)

If a host address (name or IP#) is added, the state of the computer will be monitored and reported as a normal device state (on/off). The polltime variable in the config file controls how often a device state check will be done.
