try 'ip directed broadcast' on the cisco.
lots of info here: Catalyst Layer 3 Switch for Wake-On-LAN Support Across VLANs Configuration Example - Cisco Systems
We have a mixture of Procurve and Cisco on the edge of the network and Procurve as our core.
I can perform a WOL request procurve to proccurve fine. But can't do procurve to Cisco I have been googleing it as you do and can't find a straight answer. We are also putting PXE Boot at the same time and was told we could run into a little bit of trouble there.
Any thoughts for me to try.
E.g. When used with a WDS server dishing out PXE boot resides in VLAN1 with IP address 192.168.1.1/24 and the client resides in VLAN2 which is subnet 192.168.2.0/24 you would enter the helper address under the virtual interface for Vlan2. (Edit: Assuming your inter-vlan routing is currently configured and working properly)
config-if#ip helper-address 192.168.1.1
I believe there's a similar command for Procurves if they're handling the inter-vlan routing, but the syntax may be different.
WOL is causing me a headache at the moment as well. I have it working between 2 different VLANs fine. When I try and use it to wake up machines in a 3rd VLAN using the same ACLs allowing the same packets and protocol I get no joy. I know the packets are being sent because they're causing the ACL count to increment. The machines will also respond to WOL packets from within their own VLAN so WOL is working to some extent on the machines. If it didn't work at all I'd be less frustrated than having it work quite happily for one set of clients, but not another.
Sweet. I think I have cracked most of it now, I just need to wait for the SCCM guy to do his bits and then we can start testing it.
