Wake on LAN Schedule

  • Hi does anyone know how to set up WOL to trigger everyday at a specific time? eg wake up a server everyday at7am.
    I can do this via the WOL option on the pfsense interface but not set a schedule.
    Do I have to set a cron job via the command line?

    Thanks for your help

    I have figured it out, if anyone else is trying to do this, install the cron package and add this command
    /usr/local/bin/wol -i 192.168.X.X 00:11:22:33:44:55
    The ip and mac address being the ip and mac address of the machine your trying to wake.
    There is options for time, date etc there for you to edit.
