OS X 10.1.1 doesn't Wake-on-LAN

Message #1 - Posted 2001/12/13 - Steven Kan

I'm running 10.1.1 on my G4/450DP. I have Energy Saver set to Wake on Network Activity and Wake on Modem Ring.

But it doesn't wake up. I've tried ftp, http, ping, and file-sharing requests from my PC, but none of them causes my Mac to wake from its light sleep (it doesn't deep sleep anyway, but that's another issue).

Do I need to send it a "magic packet?" Does anyone have a Win or Mac application that sends magic packets?

Thanks!

I've the same experience with a G4 733. It does wake up though in 9.2. I've given up trying to sort it out.
