    What happens when I right-click a machine in the inventory and select Wake on Wan?



    First make sure that you have the red circle in front of the machine to have the option Wake up availble to you.


    Core server sends a ##LD_WAKE_ON_WAN## Message to a MDR which in turn send the Magic Packet on port 0 to the machine you want to wake up.

    The protocol used is WOL.

    In the below wireshark trace ->Core -> MDR


    You do not need to have a static MDR.
