NAME
     wakeonlan -- send Wake on LAN frames to hosts on a local Ethernet network

SYNOPSIS
     wakeonlan [interface] lladdr [lladdr ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The wakeonlan program is used to send Wake on LAN (WoL) frames over a local Ethernet network
     to one or more hosts using their link layer (hardware) addresses.	WoL functionality is gen-
     erally enabled in a machine's BIOS and can be used to power on machines from a remote system
     without having physical access to them.

     interface is an Ethernet interface of the local machine and is used to send the Wake on LAN
     frames over it.  If there is only one Ethernet device available that is up and running, then
     the interface argument can be omitted.  lladdr is the link layer address of the remote
     machine.  This can be specified as the actual hardware address (six hexadecimal numbers sep-
     arated by colons) or as a hostname entry in /etc/ethers.  wakeonlan accepts multiple lladdr
     addresses.  Link layer addresses can be determined and set using ifconfig(8).

FILES
     /etc/ethers  Ethernet host name data base.

SEE ALSO
     ethers(5), ifconfig(8)
