    WoL magic packets are not routable, so you are going to have a run a WoL-Proxy if you want to us it over the internet and not just the internat.

    Don't need to use it over the internet. All i want to setup/investigate is to get my HTPC to 'wake up' the server when it wants to access data. Having the Wake On LAN function is mainly to save on running costs for me. I don't want the server to run 24/7 only when needed.

    I assume magic packets can only be generated by a dedicated program and not through windows nativley?

    Found this website last week and tried the program. It works a treat. Had to disable most of the start up programs in msconfig (server, windows xp) to allow the 'server' to succesfully go to sleep.

    Home plugs are working a treat with streaming 720p material, absolutley flawless.
