You only need the client.exe to do the shutdown "shut-down-over-lan" ;-)
there should be one single commandline tool which only needs the mac-adress of the machine you want
to wake up and nothing at the client side except the ability of the hardware to WOL. Maybe I get the
time to check it out later myself and send you the syntax of the commandlinetool, but right now I´m

Thanks for the linkage. I couldn't find an English version, so I've
installed the German version.
However, it would appear that some "Client.exe" has to be installed
(on the "server" even). I'm not quite sure about how/where this should
be done, nor am I certain about what IP etc. Client.exe should be
configured with? (My German is somewhat lacking I'm afraid.)
All in all, this application appear to be quite complex for a WOL
utility?!? Especially compared with the one in m0n0wall, but I guess
it will be OK for testing purposes, that is if you can help me with
the configuration issue?
