How to enable Wake-on-LAN with NetLogin

    Hi,

    we have a request to make WoL possible in our network.
    I already found that aritcle: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000082951
    but I have a few issues:

    • The first method doesn't work here. I can see, that "show udp-profile" forwards traffic to my dummy-vlan, but the device doesn't wake up. If I send out the WoL packet, when the computer is on, my wireshark can see the incoming WoL packet. I did all the commands, which are described for that method
    • The second method is not applicable, because we don't want to edit scripts on the switch, when changing a netlogin-port - that is simply too much
    • The third method is not applicable, because most of our switches doesn't support OnePolicy

    I'm sure that I am not the only one who experience these issues - has anyone a working solution for that scenario?

    Best Regards
    Chacko

    Windows 10 seems to disable will by default. It has to do with a default power setting and can be fixed with a gpo. Not sure if this is part of your issue or not, but thought it was worth mentioning.

    You should consider IP directed broadcast or enable broadcast flooding into the netlogin VLAN.

    Ok, problem solved.
    You need to enable egress broadcasts to the Netlogin-VLAN.
    After that is done, it works like stated in the KB-article

    Not sure which KB article you have referred. Anyway here is what i can find the procedure from one of the article mentioned earlier. If not then please refer this for your future reference:

    Anyway good to hear that after enabling the egress broadcast this started to work as expected.

    This solution seems to work for EXOS with Netlogin (802.1x and/or mac).
    But the command "netlogin ports [port_list | all] allow egress-traffic [none | unicast | broadcast | all_cast]"
    is no more available, if OnePolicy (Enterasys Policy) are used.

    As described in command reference: "Enabling ONEPolicy removes the action of this command. This command is supported only in non-policy mode"

    I'm not able to find a solution for following scenario:
    - X440-G2 L2-Access Switch (no option for making them routing)
    - Extreme NAC with Policy
    - EXOS 22.3
    - One Policy enabled

    Regards

    Hi,

    ok, good to know.

    But I do the testing with Windows 7.
    When I configure the test-port without netlogin, the WoL instantly wakes up the computer.

    Hi, where do I exactly need to enable that?
    We have a NetLogin-VLAN without an IP address and a few Layer-3 VLANs where the clients are assigned to.
