yeah I am wondering if that isn't the easiest route to go though if 
there already is

one. I am waiting for an answer from Cisco. Cisco switches and routers 
can forward wol

packets sent over udp. But etherwake doesn't do that apparently.

So if I want to wake up machines from a central location, I either need 
to use something

else then ether-wake, or  don't do it from a central location it looks like.
