If you're using m0n0, and trying to WOL from the outside, I'd be shocked
if it ever worked.  I can get it to work on the local net no problem,
but this post pretty well sums it up:  
http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&threadm=3CE12EB9.8030508_asdis.de%40ns.sol.net&rnum=10&prev=/groups%3Fq%3Dforward%2520broadcasts%2520freebsd%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26sa%3DN%26tab%3Dwg

FreeBSD will not forward broadcasts between interfaces.  

I tried a few different ways of sending the packet from from m0n0
itself, but ran into many walls.  There is a way to do it PHP, but only
if PHP is compiled with --enable-sockets, m0n0 isn't.  You can do it
Perl, but there isn't any Perl on m0n0.  I found a utility in ports
called wol, but I get an error on libgnugetopt.so.1 not being found
after uploading it.  If someone knows a little about compiling source
for m0n0, I'd be happy to listen...
