Wake on LAN to different subnet

Is it possible to forward Wake On LAN packets from one subnet to another?

Maybe IP broadcast helper can do but as destination you can configure a unicast address only. Some SOHO appliances from other vendors have such a feature but in GAiA I can't find anything.

As far as I remember with IPSO you could send a broadcast from one subnet to another subnet as broadcast.

Hello Chris, thanks for the hint.

but how is it possible to generate it locally at the appliance for 1 subnet?

my only idea is to use a netcat script. Or is there allready a script availlable? 

Thanks Mario
