ethtool - wake on lan

enable wake on lan

check if wake on lan (wol) is supported:

ethtool enp0s31f6 # or another interface name

if you see pumbg it apparently means that it is supported, but the d in the Wake-on line says it's disabled.

Supports Wake-on: pumbg
Wake-on: d

If it's not supported, you might want to check your bios settings.

enable wake on lan:

ethtool -s enp0s31f6 wol g

wake a system

install wakeonlan on a client system, get the mac address of the environment you want to wake up and run:

wakeonlan mac-address-here
