I have the beginings of a weekend project idea but I just need to wrap it up with a bow. What I want to do is use an old cell phone to monitor the servers in my rack and remotly turn on servers.
There are already free apps out there that you can throw on an old cell that will monitor servers on LAN and send out notification in even of down server. But I was thinking the other day when my PFSense box went down for reasons unknow, I would like to be able to turn my PFSense box back on remotly. Any other system on my network can be turned on remotly by VPNing home and using wake on lan but if the PFSense box goes down I am out of luck.
I have an old cellphone and a spare Google FI data only SIM. Any Ideas on how I can turn on my firewall remotly?
