Has anyone been able to active the WOL capability on their WD? Typically on Linux, "/sbin/ethtool -s eth0 wol g" in the startup script will activate this feature, so when you shutdown … you can then broadcast a 'magic packet' and the WD should wakeup. I guess the part 2 question, is how to shut it down automatically (after some period of non-activity). And how to surface thru web interface (or do you need to do this thru SSH)?
It seems like it should be working, but I cannot get it to work.
[root@MyBookWorld ~]# /usr/sbin/ethtool eth0 Settings for eth0: Supported ports: [ TP ] Supported link modes: 10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full 100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full 1000baseT/Half 1000baseT/Full Supports auto-negotiation: Yes Advertised link modes: Not reported Advertised auto-negotiation: No Speed: 100Mb/s Duplex: Full Port: Twisted Pair PHYAD: 0 Transceiver: internal Auto-negotiation: on Supports Wake-on: puag Wake-on: g Current message level: 0x00000002 (2) Link detected: yes
Apparently wakeonlan (wol) is enabled on this mybook machine:
On my other machine I try:
$ sudo wakeonlan -i 192.168.1.2 00:90:D3:5F:23:AB; echo $? Sending magic packet to 192.168.1.2:9 with 00:90:D3:5F:23:AB 0
But no luck.
Does anyone have suggestions how to get this working?
The proud owner of a mybook too.
Bought 500 gb second hand. The thing was already hacked on firmware 01.01.08. I'm totally new to linux and such, so reading things on bricking etc doesn't make me relaxed.
Would this topic:
solve the wol thing?
So does anyone manage to make it works with firmware v.2.x ? It's really one feature that I miss :(
I too would like to know if this is possible. I use the drive primarily for Symantec System Restore and would like the drive to turn on 30 minutes before backup. I already have a script to shut it down after the backup, I would just like to automate the process of turning it on.
You normally use BIOS settings to enable WOL support, unless it's enabled by default, and no BIOS for mbwe, so can't see any way to enable it here.
UPD: it gives "Wake-on: g" o_O?.. Strange, I don't recall anything of the kind, but my drive is bricked right now, so who knows… Well, will see what can be done when I get a chance to investigate, then :)
Is there a way to install wakeonlan or similar package on the MYBOOK (blueu ring) to wake-on an other PC (my second one is running under gentoo) ?
I found "wakelan" with ipkg.
Does it work with the WD MYBOOK ?
I know this is an old post, but it's the only one close to what I need.
I second what benjamin said above. Is it possible to Wake-on-LAN while logged in via SSH a computer in the network where the My Book Live Duo (in my case) is located?
