This script wakes the remote computers on the local LAN.
This script will send a WoL (Wake-On-LAN) packet to each MAC address
listed in file uploaded via its preference.
To use this feature :
- The scanner must be located on the same physical subnet
as the targets.
- The MAC addresses of the targets must be listed in a
text file supplied via the policy (Edit the policy ->
Advanced -> Wake-On-LAN). Each MAC address should be
supplied on a different line.
This script will cause Nessus to wait 5 minutes (or any value
configured) before starting the scan to give time to the remote
systems to wake up from sleep.
