Sending Wake on LAN from Wifi Pineapple


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to experiment sending Wake on LAN (WOL) signals to my both my Windows computer to wake them up from my IOS phone.

The procedure goes like this:

1) Using the IOS app Workflow, I trigger a script over SSH connection to my WiFi Pineapple TETRA.

2) The script should send a WOL signal to my designated Windows machine.

The problem is I don't know how to send WOL with the Pineapple. I know you can install etherwake on a Native Linux, but there is no apt-get in the Pineapple.

Eventually I'll combine the automation procedure with IFTTT and Alexa once I get my hands on it.


Yes, I know this can be done with an Android or Raspberry Pi, but I don't have them and I don't plan on getting them. I just want to experiment with what I have as of now.

Please let me know if you would like me to explain further. I greatly appreciate any thoughts and help from the community.
