Symptoms
How to move Ether-Wake from one VLAN to another
Environment
EXOS 16.1
Cause
In a LINUX server you can use Ether-Wake method instead of the UDP Wake-on-Lan method.
Therefore, it is not possible to use the udp-profile (described in  Wake on Lan (WOL) to work with Netlogin) as this Ether_Wake is a kind of RAW Ethernet packet.
Resolution
What we basically need to do is match on ethertype 0x0842 and move that packet from one VLAN to another.
Until EXOS 16.1 this was not possible through ACL's but in the new ACL implementation we can split actions in two classes.

In the following example:
Class-1:
ACL will match on ethertype 0x0842
It add a VLAN-ID
Mark is as class-2

Class-2:
It will redirect the packet to the appropriate VLAN and flood it there.

entry v1 {
if {
ethernet-type 0x842;
}
then {
add-vlan-id <VLAN-ID>;
class-id 2;
}
}
entry doredirect {
if {
class-id 2;
}
then {
redirect-vlan ;
}
}
