Ok, just did a quick look:

You find the tool PwrSwtchCMD.exe in the Installdirectory of the program.

To wake up a pc:
PwrSwtchCMD.exe -wu m:<MAC-Adress> ip:<IP> [s:<Subnetmask>]

Worked for me the time before m0n0 got capable of WOL.

which is very simple to use. And it´s freeware. Give it a try...

Hi Holger,

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?
