Trying to wake my pc outside of my home network. Have setup a dyndns account which is all working fine (currently setup with my CCTV system) but having issues setting up port forwarding for WOL. I need to open port 9 on the broadcast IP 192.168.1.255. When I try to apply the new settings it fails to save. Assuming the router blocks me from doing so? Any help or ideas much appreciated.
In addition.... I did try and set it up for my PC's physical IP address but have realised it doesn't work like this. Seems like you need to send the WOL packet to all IP's on the network in order for it to work.
