Add Wake On LAN to Agent Scan

I would like to be able to enable "wake up offline computers" for agent scans. Currently this is only an option with scheduled scans, which are much more network intensive. It shouldn't be too hard to have the LANguard server send out a WOL magic packet at the scheduled time for agent scans, what way we can reap the benefits of WOL and agent scans without having to resort to third party WOL software.

    Printer is a very important peripheral device of a computer and permits users to transform virtual texts into a printed copy. To get the maximum output with high efficiency, setting printer properly is very important. Canon Printer Setup in an exact way requires an extra skill to connect with the computer and tweaking the settings as per the end-user’s requirements and system compatibility.

    It works by receiving what's called a "magic packet" that's sent from a WoL client. ... A computer's hardware does have to support Wake-on-LAN with a compatible BIOS and network interface card, so not every computer is automatically able to use Wake-on-LAN.

    Hosts can be configured to be woken up with a Wake-on-LAN packet, which allows Nessus to scan more hosts that it otherwise would not, because if the host is not turned on, Nessus would typically deem the host as dead after sending 2 ping requests.

    If you notice certain hosts did not Wake-on-LAN, run an audit trail on plugins 52616 & 86420 to see if any hosts did not Wake-on-LAN.
