Trying to get WakeOnLan to work over the internet
Trying to get WakeOnLan ( www.readpixel.com/wakeonlan/ ) to work over the internet, so I can remote wake my Mac Pro from sleep with my Macbook Pro, connect to it via Chicken (VNC) and then put it back to sleep when I'm done.
Thus far I've been able to get everything working locally on the LAN. Chicken works, WakeOnLAN works.
If I try it remotely over the internet however, the Mac doesn't wake up. Chicken works over the internet if my Mac is already awake.
Router is a Linksys E1000. I set my router's subnet mask on 255.255.255.128. I set up my router's port forwarding to 192.168.1.127 (listening port) on ports 7 and 9 for wakeup. Router's firewall is disabled. Is there something I'm missing here?

It's looking like the reason it doesn't work is that Linksys disabled the broadcast address forwarding feature in recent firmware... Means I might have to go with DD-WRT for this to work!
If anyone has other suggestions I'm all ears.

Now that I think about it...
You can do WoL from the DD-WRT interface. Your remote workflow would be something like...
1) Login to your home router via Safari, use that to wake your Mac.
2) Connect via VNC, put it back to sleep via Apple > Sleep when you're done. Or just wait for automatic sleep to kick in.
