So we’ve been troubleshooting an issue with RCT’s WOL function in our environment lately. We used to have an older version (3.2) where the WOL worked correctly. Since we have upgraded to version 4.5/4.4 WOL seems to ignore our settings for the port to send the packet through.
In the Configure Recast RCT app, we check the Unicast box and set the port to 12287. If we are on the latest version (4.0+), RCT reports back sending the WOL packets through port 0 and they never reach the endpoint. We had Cisco and our network teams try to trace everything back but at this point we think it’s definitely a problem with RCT.
However, I just downgraded the version to an old one we have to 3.2. This version seems to send the packets through the correct port that we configure.
If anyone has any insight as to why the newer versions of RCT could be ignoring the port setting and sending WOL packets through port 0 please let me know. We’re running on an SCCM 2016 environment as well.
