Does anyone know how to actually wake a Mac that has had its Energy Saver prefs set in the Advanced tab to "Wake for network administrative access"? I was thinking that the cpu is probably watching for a ping on a certain port that then notifies the CPU to wake. Only I have been unable to find which port it is or even if that is the technique to use.

I want to be able to wake several Mac's on my LAN from a central Mac that houses a Retrospect backup server and I need some method of doing this. Does anyone have any ideas?
