WOL via VPN
I would like to send a unicast to tcp port 9 to forward a broadcast for WOL to a specific target pc.
Is this somehow possible with pfsense?
My use-case: Send a WOL request via IPsec tunnel on my smartphone

No. WOL requires a specific Ethernet frame, not IP packet. So, it will not pass through an IPSec VPN. The best you could do is use the smart phone to trigger something on the network to send that frame.
