Raspberry Pi wake up Windows PC via LAN cable

Wed May 08, 2019 7:58 am

Hey guys,

I want to be able to turn on my pc remotely.
As I don't have any possibility to connect my pc with my router via a LAN cable, I came up with the following idea:

1. Connect the Raspberry Pi with the Windows PC via LAN cable
2. Remotely access the Pi via SSH (or whatever) and send a magic packet through the LAN cable directly to the PC

My problem is, I don't really know how to send that packet to the PC. Maybe one of you guys could help me. Thanks in advance!

This addresses your broadcast IP and the magic packet will be sent through the router or am I wrong?
