    Wake On Lan - Directed Broadcast

      I'm not sure if this is the best location for this post.  We're just starting to investigate WOL but one thing scares us off.  

      We don't like the risks of using Directed Broadcast; but it seems to be the only way to distribute the the magic packets to remote destinations.  We have a very large network with hundreds of subnets spread over dozens of dozens of routers.  We normally have directed broadcast turned off and I'm not thrilled with the idea of turning it on for all these networks.

      What are anyone else's thoughts on this?

      Thank you.
