This package needs a new maintainer!
If you are interested in helping with the maintenance of wol, please get in touch with our
Proxy Maintainers team.
wol implements Wake On LAN functionality in a small program. It wakes up hardware that is Magic Packet compliant. Consider you have a sleeping or turned-off computer and you want to remotely wake him up. Just type "wol MAC-ADDRESS" and the host wakes up (OK, it will boot ;-).
