Extending Wake on Lan to work in multi-host environments

NoMachine development team is evaluating an improvement of the first Wake on LAN feature https://www.nomachine.com/FR09H02385.

NoMachine server should be able to send a Wake on LAN (WOL) magic packet to wake up the remote hosts that are in 'low power mode', e.g. are in sleep, hybernation mode to save power, or powered off.

Pre-requisite is that the device supports Wake on LAN. In some cases it can be necessary to configure manually the device to listen for the WOL magic packet.
