I have a script that works to WOL my PC when I try to remote desktop in. I can kick it off from the shell using the following command

/bin/sh /tmp/custom.sh &

and it'll run until the router reboots which is great but I cannot get the script to kick off on startup for me

I currently have this as the startup script

/bin/sh -c '/bin/sh /tmp/custom.sh' &

I've tried a bunch of different combinations but I'm not that knowledgable of linux

Here are other commands I've tried in the startup script

/bin/sh /tmp/custom.sh
/bin/sh /tmp/custom.sh &
sh /tmp/custom.sh
sh /tmp/custom.sh &

Here is the script main script that works fine if I kick it off from he shell then log out in case it has something to do with it (it's modifed using the Web WOL script)



#!/bin/sh

INTERVAL=5
NUMP=3
OLD=""
WOL=/usr/sbin/wol
TARGET=192.168.2.99
MAC=48:5B:39:C9:E9:76
LOGFILE="/tmp/www/wol.log"

nvram set log_rejected=0
nvram set log_enable=1
nvram set log_level=2
nvram set log_dropped=0
nvram set log_accepted=1
nvram commit


cat /dev/null >/tmp/var/log/messages

while sleep $INTERVAL;do
NEW=`awk '/ACCEPT/ && /DST='"$TARGET"'/ && /DPT=3389/ {print $3}' /var/log/messages | tail -1`
SRC=`awk -F'[=| ]' '/ACCEPT/ && /DST='"$TARGET"'/ && /DPT=3389/ {print $13}' /var/log/messages | tail -1`
LINE=`awk '/ACCEPT/ && /DST='"$TARGET"'/ && /DPT=3389/' /var/log/messages`
if [ "$NEW" != "" -a "$NEW" != "$OLD" ]; then
echo "$SRC $LINE" >> $LOGFILE
RET=`ping -c $NUMP $TARGET 2> /dev/null | awk '/packets received/ {print $4}'`
if [ "$RET" -ne "$NUMP" ]; then
echo "$SRC causes WOL at" `date` >> $LOGFILE
$WOL -i 192.168.2.255 -p 9 $MAC >> $LOGFILE
sleep 5
fi
OLD=$NEW
fi
cat /dev/null >/tmp/var/log/messages
done

for whatever reason it's could not work, multiple line firewall scripts didn't seem to work too well either but I enabled cron and put the following 2 lines in

02 * * * * root /usr/bin/killall sh
03 * * * * root /bin/sh /tmp/custom.sh &

to kill and restart the process on the 2nd and 3rd minute of every hour and seems to be working well

now me and my comptuer can sleep
