Wake-On-LAN Unicast and Fortinets

Hi, I have to sites connected over two fortinet units via ipsec vpn. I now want to wake up a pc in the remote site via wake on lan. The problem is that wol is a broadcast thing and normally the magic packets won' t cross subnet borders. Now there are a lot of wol tools around that implement wol unicast by sending the magic packet and mac-address information to a specified broadcast adress for the other subnet. My question now is: Routers have to support wol unicast. Do Fortinet units do and if yes, what do i have to configure. Has anyone tried it? Bye, Tim
