    Yes, it does; I have two machines I use it with on a regular basis.
One is a mac, the other is a generic pc from 2005 or so.

    The mac in particular gets woken up on a regular basis by remote
programs.  It's not generally known, but the WoL standard wakeup packet
embeds in UDP without any trouble.
