  Install a small router that does NAT.  The only machines on
your network receiving unsolicited traffic from outside, then,
should be servers for which you've provided a static NAT mapping.

Subject: Wake-On-LAN security

I am currently on dialup and have the dialup gateway box 
connected to a switch via a WOL nic. The modem connects to 
the gateway box with a serial connection.

I am upgrading to ADSL and will have the ADSL initially, 
directly connected into the switch.

What command or procedure could be used by a hacker coming 
through my ADSL connection into the switch to wake up 
machines plugged into the switch that have Wake-On-LAN nics?

How could I prevent the machines from waking up, besides 
turning off the switch or unplugging the network cable?

Appreciated
Hylton
