Hi,

I'm looking to use the online mpw wake up by Maschine. I've read the doco and it says that it is possible to use the online wake up through a NAT firewall/router with the appropriate port forwarding configured.

Does anyone know just off hand what the necessary port(s) that need to be forwarded are ?

I can setup the offline version, and use ethereal to sniff it, but if anyone has already done it, no point in reinventing the wheel :)

Thanks.

    Hi!

    Hmm, as you say this now I see that I indeed did not describe this in the docs... Reason is that my Router can't be used for this feature as it doesn't support this broadcast thing so I couldn't test... There were several people crying "Give us WOL" but when I asked for volunteers to test some things like this which I couldn't there was 0 reply.

    The bed calls now so I'll look in this tomorrow. The magic packet to wake up the HTPC is sent on UDP port 9. Maybe this helps you already, otherwise an more exact answer tomorrow ;-)

    thanks for the reply.

    I did a bit of a dig and found that WOL is typically implemented with UDP port 9 or UDP port 32767.

    I have configured my router (a Linksys wrt54G running alchemy firmware) to forward both ports to the broadcast address (192.168.1.255) and no go.

    I'll setup ethereal on my network to sniff the packets. If I run wol.exe locally from one of my other machines there is no problem, however the wol from your website just doesn't want to wake it up.

    I'll let you know how I get along with the packet sniffer.

    also you need to forward those ports in your router to your computer IP address hosting MPW otherwise it will still not work.

    I think you better deactivate the home screen in settings and then everything else is the "Home Screen" that you are looking for. The top menu shows the groups and you see the menu tiles in the bottom. But you can also freely scroll through the menu tiles without using the group menu. just try pressing only right or left. Why is this...
