I see (at last!) that WOL is being tested for SqueezeBox 2. Will and can this be extended for SqueezeBox 1 once testing is complete??

Is this wakeup the server when the squeezebox asks?

Or wakeup the squeezebox when the PC user asks?

It is to wake up the pc hosting the slim server using standard WOL from Squeezebox.

Actually, now that I think of it, my question was pretty dumb. Not enough coffee in the morning, I suppose.

You can already wake up the squeezebox from the PC, although "OFF" seems more a state of mind than anything actually being turned off. You *can* dim the display, though.

Guys,

My question seems to be confused. The PC hosting the slimserver has a network card that is configured to use Wake On Lan. I.E if it recieves its mac address 16 times it will wake up the PC.

What I want is what is being tested from for Squeezebox 2. To be able to send these wake on lan packets from my squeezebox 1.

By the way WOL does work over wireless as it is simply a ip directed broadcast to a particular mac address!!

My questions, will wake on lan be supported on Squeezebox1 and well as 2????
