I don't know, maybe this is OT, maybe others are interested too, or
maybe this deserves a completely new thread, but to me it sounds very
interesting. For those who don't know yet, the Fritz!Box is a router
family made by AVM, very popular in Germany.
Are there any pointers on how to handle powerup by etherwake and /or the
Fritz!Box? NVRAM is set up on my VDR box and works well, I also have a
Fritz!Box with slightly modified firmware (I occasionaly read the
http://www.ip-phone-forum.de), and it would be cool if I could also
wakeup my server and my vdr box remotely via the Fritz!Box, I only
didn't find a clear howto for this on that forum, is there any?
