IP Directed Broadcast


We want to use wake on LAN in a vlan attached to a layer3 interface on the firewall. The magic packets are sent from a server outside the vlan to the broadcast address. I allowed WOL-packets in the firewall policies, and I see them in the logs, but the computers don't start. Do we have to configure something else in the firewall to allow ip directed broadcasts like we have to do in our cisco L3-switches?

Don't think it is possible in Layer 3 mode:

This solution allowed me to pass the WOL packets/ direct broadcast through the interfaces.
