Malformed wol packets



  • Hey everyone!

    Well, after an hour of fiddeling around with the settings on my PC to try to get it workling with pfSense's integrated wake on lan functionallity
    I found out (with wireshark) that the magic packages that pfsense sends are presumably invalid.

    To confirm this I simply tried a generic wake on lan app on my phone and it instantly worked.

    (192.168.5.1 is pfsense, .5.81 is the phone and .5.7 the PC)

    So, something arrives at my PC every time I click on the wake button in pfsense, but it's malformed.

    Can anyone confirm this, is it a known problem or is it just my system? Because I didn't find any info so far...
    (When searching for wol problems with pfsense most results are about wrong settings on the target device)

    Thanks in advance!
