I have a Windows XP box running a proxy server (Proxy+), and I have a Linux box that connects to the internet through this proxy. I have the Windows box configured to wake on lan by configuring the network card in Device Manager by checking "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby.) I have Standby enabled on Windows, but not Hibernate.
When I start up my browser on the Linux box (Firefox specifically), sometimes the Windows XP box is brought out of standby, sometimes it is not and I have to push the power button to manually bring it out of standby. Sometimes the Windows box will go in standby before the 1 hour of inactivity I specified (on the order of 10-15 minutes).
Are there any other configurations I need to make on the Windows side? Or, is there a way I can guarantee that the Linux machine wakes up the Windows box?
I should note that I have S3 Power management configured in BIOS. Windows Machine is Dell Optiplex 240GX. Linux is Dell Optiplex 270GX running OpenSuSE 11.2. Thanks
