NAME
       pwol - Send Wake-On-LAN (WoL) packets to	wake-up	hosts over the network

SYNOPSIS
       pwol [options] [_hosts|groups_]

DESCRIPTION
       pwol is a tool that can be used to send WoL (Wake-On-LAN) network pack-
       ets in order to wake-up sleeping	hosts, either directly or via routers.

       It can also be used as a	WoL proxy daemon  listening  to	 incoming  WoL
       packets (possibly authenticated)	and then forwarding requests to	one or
       many other targets.

       If no hosts or groups are specified on the command line then pwol  will
       read them from the command line.
