The gateway on a Windows 2003 Managed Node is crashing frequently. Service Pack 1 is installed on this machine. In the gatelog you can see that it is last trying to do a Wake on Lan to an Endpoint:
end_wol_packet: remote ip addr=X.X.X.X remote net mask=X.X.X.X wol_broadcast=1 wol_direct=0
On windows 2003 with SP1 the following Service has to be started:
"Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)". Check with "net start", if the service is running. If not, start it.
This problem is also investigated with Microsoft.
This appears to be when using wol_broadcast. I have not be able to see if wol_direct is impacted by this also.
