IP directed broadcast

I highly would request the IP directed-broadcast feature to support Wake-on-Lan initiated from agents placed in other subnets.

 

My customers have frontends to wake up clients, requesting a wake-on-lan frame via giving the destination subnet and the MAC address of the client in this subnet.

In the current setup the Cisco 800 router responsible for this subnet receives the WOL-frame and initiate a broadcast in its connected subnet.

 

Workarounds are also welcome 🙂

 

Best regards,

Rene

Additional info: I don't have any MS devices in the networks, so I also do not have the option to initiate WoL-Api Calls via the dashboard.

Re: IP directed broadcast

@reca this sounds fairly complicated for Meraki Go hardware. Are you using Meraki Enterprise hardware?
