comment Loading a website using IP
Your browser will not send a 'Host:' header if you specify http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. DNS doesn't really have anything to do with the header directly (your browser uses DNS to find the IP of the host, and also sends the Host: header.) Behavior can vary according to how the web server is configured if your browser sends no header - it may ignore you, return an error, take you to a default site, simply not care, etc. The whole reason for the Host: header is so that one IP can be used to host sites for multiple domains - so mysite.example and mysite2.example can point to the same IP.

You're probably in the wrong directory. You may need to issue a cd command.

comment How does wake-on-lan works?
Basically, you can have another system on the same network send a WOL packet to a powered-off computer with WOL turned on, and the system will then power on. You can't WOL over the internet directly, there would have to be a system on that network powered on and accessible via the Internet that can send a WOL to the system you want turned on. Some home routers can do this (and they'll generally be always turned on and able to be accessed remotely by design), or some such routers can be flashed to DD-WRT/OpenWRT that can do this.

comment Why do I get permission denied even as root?
The NFS server may be denying access on the server end for some reason. Been a while since I've messed with NFS but I think on an NFS server you can deny a host or make permissions map differently. This would block you even as root locally. The NFS server itself may also not have permission to write on the remote directory for some reason, i.e. it's read only due to a crash or error.
