Wake on LAN across subnets



  • Hello everyone

    I have two seperate subnet's, LAN and WIFI. Now I would like to wake up a server which is connected to the LAN subnet using my iPhone or any other device connected to the WIFI (currently I am using the pfSense GUI, which is not very convenient). Due to the subnet segregation broadcasts are not getting forwarded. I don't want to bridge both subnets as I want to keep the filtering ability.

    • Is there some kind of 'ip helper' available in pfSense?
    • Is there a way to configure subnet directed broadcasts?

    Thanks in advance!
