I'm struggling with getting WoL working on my new DS210+. I've never used WoL before, but I'm fairly IT proficient and this one's got me stumped! Setup is as follows:
- DS210+ on LAN with static IP and WoL enabled.
Dlink DGS-1008D Green switch
Linksys WAG-160N router, with ports 80(http), 443(https), 5000 and 5001 all forwarded to the NAS IP as TCP format, and then ports 7 and 9 (WoL - see below) forwarded to the NAS IP as UDP format.
As for a WoL magic packet app - I'm actually trying "on-line" websites that generate and send the magic packet for me from your IP and MAC (because it's not practical or possible for me to install a magic packet app on the client PC owing to admin rights)... Have tried both: http://www.wakeonlan.me/ and also http://www.dslreports.com/wakeup. Whilst I understand this may be the problem - i.e can I be sure the website is sending the magic packet - these both "appear" to be reliable sites for WoL users. However, no joy. I'm using the suggested ports from these sites for WoL access - ports 7 & 9 as UDP, but the DS refuses to turn on over the WAN. It will however turn on over the LAN using the bundled Syno app, so again, fairly confident it's not the NAS, but rather my setup.
The ONLY thing I can think of that I may be doing wrong is that I'm trying to forward WoL packets direct to the NAS IP address, rather than broadcasting to all on the network via the broadcast address - this is because the Linksys router software won't accept the common xxx.xxx.xxx.255 broadcast address. Could this be my problem?
I started looking into packet sniffers like wireshark to see if I could actually detect the incoming packet, but that's something I don't have experience in.
Any ideas anyone?!
Many thanks, Beagle
