Wake-On-Lan on Linux

something I couldn't find on the first 10 Google links:
To get Wake-On-Lan working on Debian GNU/Linux (and probably most other
Linux distributions), you have to enable it first on the target computer
via

ethtool -s wol g

This enables WoL using AMD's MagicPacket format. For other WoL options see
the ethtool documentation.
