How to make Wake-On-Lan Inter Router with Brocade

Hello!  I need help.  I would like to configure Wake-On-Lan inter router Brocade ICX6610.


I follow this configuration:


It's work perfecly for computers who are in back of the router.


Now I would like that it work behind a second router.  If I activate "ip directed-broadcast" on the second router, it's work.  But I want to make it with iP helper-adress or something like that.


WOL Server


  Router #1 ICX6610  -------> PC (Wol OK)


  Router #2 ICX6610 -------> PC (wol don't work (unless I active ip directed-broadcast))


 Anyone can help me please?

Re: How to make Wake-On-Lan Inter Router with Brocade

We found the solution! :catvery-happy:


We create an ACL on the second router and we activate it on the "master link" port of router.


Eg: Wol Server Address:


access-list 101 permit ip host

access-list 101 deny ip any

access-list 101 permit ip any any


The 1st line allow wol server to broadcast.

The 2nd line block all others broadcast (because we activate ip directed-broadcast on link).

The third line allow normal traffic.


Now, we put that on the "master link" ethernet 1/3/4 and we activate ip directed-broadcast.


interface ethernet 1/3/4

  port-name Uplink (Gi1/3)

  ip access-group 101 in

  ip address

  ip directed-broadcast

  ip pim-sparse

  ip ospf area 0

  sflow forwarding



All traffic who enter on the router pass in our access-list.
