I am working at home and want to wake a computer in the corporate network. I have a VPN connection from my Windows 7 PC to the ISA server that operates as RAS server.

Wake-on-LAN is based on UDP/IP and should be sent to the broadcast MAC address. When I try to send a packet to the network broadcast address at my PC it looks like it is not forwarded to the corporate network.

Is it possible to configure the VPN client and the ISA server so that wake-on-LAN packets go though?

Edit

For clarification I have some addresses:

  • home PC VPN adapter address 192.168.1.93 [varies on RAS dial-in]
  • wake-on-LAN PC 192.168.1.22
  • ISA PC 192.168.1.1

I have some further addresses that should not care:

  • ISA external address 83.26.4.139
  • home PC LAN adapter address 192.168.73.10
  • home PC NAT router address 192.168.73.1
  • home PC NAT external address [varies on DSL connect]

Which if my addresses should be entered at Your external NIC internet IP address? The address of the VPN adapter varies for each RAS dial in. –  harper Mar 4 '13 at 13:11
    
@harper ISA external address 83.26.4.139 –  STTR Mar 4 '13 at 13:17
    
This is the EXTERNAL address, The Internet. Wake-on-LAN packets can be sent by any node in the Internet. I don't plan to accept packets from the public Internet. It should be tunneled through Virtual Privat Network, shouldn't it? –  harper Mar 4 '13 at 13:25
    
@harper Yes, change External network to VPN Clients and additional create allow rule WOL protocol to VPN Clients, Internal and Local Host –  STTR Mar 4 '13 at 13:30
