Wake On LAN Bug workaround

Wake On LAN does not work with etherwake

FOG-Version: 0.21

etherwake is located in: /usr/sbin/etherwake

The wol.php sourcecode reveals two things:

  • FOG expects it here: /sbin
  • it is expected to have a DIFERENT NAME(!) *argh* (ether-wake)


  • become root
  • ln -s /usr/sbin/etherwake /sbin/ether-wake OR cp /usr/sbin/etherwake /sbin/ether-wake
  • visudo

add this line: www-data ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /sbin/ether-wake

WOL should work now. At least it does at my site.
