View Full Version : WOL: case sensitive hexadecimal numbers

I could not find it either in the documentation nor in the forums, so I write it down, at least for the sake of documentation.

The WOL plugin in NR takes as argument a MAC address. This consists of six hexadecimal bytes, separated by colons. It turns out that using lower case letters (e.g. 12:34:56:78:9a:bc) does not work, upper case has to be used (in the example 12:34:56:78:9A:BC).

You may or may not agree that this is a bug; IMHO it is. (At least the "limitation" is not documented.) No, it is not very important, and I have no really expectation to see it fixed...
