Project Description

A small python module for wake on lan. It has been tested both locally and externally using Python 2.7.3 and Python 3.2.3.

The project is hosted on GitHub. For more information on the wake on lan protocol please take a look at Wikipedia.

Usage

To wake up a computer using wake on lan it must first be enabled in the BIOS settings. Please note the computer you are trying to power on does not have an ip address, but it does have a mac address. The package needs to be sent as a broadcast package.

As a python module

  • Import the module
>>> from wakeonlan import wol
  • Wake up a single computer by its mac address
>>> wol.send_magic_packet('ff.ff.ff.ff.ff.ff')
  • Wake up multiple computers by their mac addresses.
>>> wol.send_magic_packet('ff.ff.ff.ff.ff.ff', '00-00-00-00-00-00',
...                       'FFFFFFFFFFFF')
  • An external host may be specified. Do note that port forwarding on that host is required. The default ip address is 255.255.255.255 and the default port is 9.
>>> wol.send_magic_packet('ff.ff.ff.ff.ff.ff',
...                       ip_address='example.com',
...                       port=1337)

As a standalone script

usage: wol [-h] [-i ip] [-p port] mac addresses [mac addresses ...]
