I have two computers on a network at home. One computer is always/usually on, the other is on standby. I'll open up a port on the router, and I want to be able to either ping or connect to the first computer, and then send a WOL packet to turn on the second computer. Remote control is not an option because other users may be using the computer and I don't want to interfere here, so I want something that sits in the background and I can either ping it, or it can serve up some sort of simple webpage that I can initiate a WOL packet. I know of a command-line utility that can quickly send a WOL packet, so I just need something to execute the program. So I'm wondering if anyone knows how to implement such a thing.
