Info Nessus Plugin ID 52616


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.
