Wake on LAN

WakeonLAN

I have been working with the wakeonlan command and it does not work with the command eg wakeonlan 00:30:48:70:45:8c.
I have however got it to work with wakeonlan -i 192.168.1.255 00:30:48:70:45:8c by
using the broadcast address for the private network the node is on.
I have tried it a good number of times and it is consistently switching on the compute-4 node.
I think the main problem was to do with the wakeonlan command not knowing where to send the magic packet either on the bridge network or the private network.
