Step by step guide how to activate WOL

To activate the work of WOL (Wake on Lan) requires:

  • Validity pair of MAC address and serial number, see more how to generate >>
  • Change the value MAC and Serial in the syslinux.cfg file on XPEnology USB flash drive
  • Motherboard, LAN, BIOS WOL Supports (Enable the option in the BIOS)
  • For some PCI cards – the procedure is not required

So, begin

  1. Enable “Service SSH” in the Control Panel Synology DiskStation

    Also you can use the terminal command:
    chmod 0775 /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/
    chmod +x /usr/syno/etc/rc.d/

  4. Then, find and open a file synoinfo.conf in directory:

    Press F4 to edit synoinfo.conf file in WinSCP and change the following values:

    // etc. if you have network cards ..//

    Also you can use MC or VI editor on terminal shell for edit synoinfo.conf

  5. Save your changes and reboot the server. Now, WOL is enabled!
    To enable WOL from the outside – open UDP port 9

Changeling MAC addresses in the syslinux.cfg configuration file
is useful only when the server is turned on.
When the server is turned off – using the original MAC address of the network card
but not the values in the file, and maybe WOL will not work. It will be useful to read – ARP.
Therefore, for stable worked WOL, flash your generated MAC address on the network card (It is very easy and fast):
