This tool provides a command-line interface to wake up computers over the network. It consists of two main parts. On the one hand there is the command-line interface for interacting with the user, on the other hand this tool uses a shared library which could be used by other programs to implement "Wake on LAN".
Besides, it is possible to decide by which protocol the data should be sent. You can choose between Ethernet, IP (IPv4 and IPv6) or UDP.
Furthermore, it supports SecureOn to secure the process of waking up your computer by a password.
You can download an tar-archive for Windows and Linux which provides the source code and the precompiled binaries, so you can use the program without the need of compiling the sources by yourself. As an extra the Linux archive also provides an deb-package for easier installation.
