VLANs, Comware 5 and Wake-on-LAN
I'm really hoping someone can point me in the right direction on this as the HP/3COM documentation isn't particularly clear and I would really like to get this working :/
I've just begun VLANning off my network which is all HP/3COM gear; the core and a couple of main edges are running Comware 5 and some of the old layer 3 devices are still on Comware 3, but they're similar enough that I can translate from one to the other. Our computers are told to shut down each night by the main DC and then woken up the next morning. The shut down still works fine (Layer 3) but the Wake-on-LAN packets are layer 2 and therefore not reaching the new broadcast domains.
They're sent out on port 7 and are, I assume, UDP packets. How in $deity's name do I tell the switches to forward on these broadcasts?
I'm not much fussed how it's achieved - broadcast forwarding, multicast, whatever - so long as the switches automatically pass round these UDP:7 packets. I can't address the WoL packets to a broadcast address either, so it needs to be the switches automatically sending them on.
