For those who are interested, a WOL script is available in "The Underground", which is located hereviewtopic.php?t=2661
Remember, if you modify your system, you waive your right to Synology online support.
: This PHP-script can be installed on a webserver (which may be running on a NAS) to* WOL a remote host by/ from that webserver. This does not provide the functionality the topic starter suggested, which is to WOL the NAS from a remote client. I fully support this feature request. In my opinion, WOL is a logical, basic and thus must-have functionality for remotely managed devices, such as a NAS.
*) Btw, some routers such as the Draytek 2820 series
support waking-up remote hosts within the (private) LAN.

The hardware does not support WOL!
: WOL saves power consumption. Synology's website claims that: "its products are designed with the concept of energy savings in mind, it recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and it is continually working to reduce the environmental impact of the products it creates." Please, can you confirm whether or not Synology's NASs (will) support WOL? If Synology products do not
support WOL, please explain whether this is due to the hardware (motherboard and Network Interface Card) and/ or firmware? WOL uses the unsecure OSI-layer 2
. If Synology products do
support WOL, please explain whether or not they support "SecureOn" (so the NIC checks for a hexadecimal password of 6 bytes, which can be appended/ postfixed to the magic packet)? SecureOn makes brute force attacks far less attractive: 2 values per bit ^ ((6 bytes for remote host's mac_address + 6 bytes for password
) * 8 bit per byte). Instead of a SecureOn enabled NIC, a similar and more secure ("gatekeeper") functionality could be offered by the firmware: After receiving a magic packet, the device could start a secure layer-3 challenge/response authentication mechanism with the remote client, before it decides to "fully" awake or resume sleeping.
As "Seattle" suggested in this
topic, it would be great to combine WOL with an option to schedule multiple events to sleep/ wake-up
(for Wake On Lan) AND shutdown/ restart
on this subject (requesting the same feature).
