G5 doesn't allow ftp/ssh access when asleep - Mac Networking

Every other Mac I have had so far has allowed ftp access when asleep (I run a mail server and and a list server under ASIP 5.0 on a 8500 running OS 8.1 and also run Netpresenz on an 8600 running OS 9.1.

    Default G5 doesn't allow ftp/ssh access when asleep

    Every other Mac I have had so far has allowed ftp access when asleep (I
    run a mail server and and a list server under ASIP 5.0 on a 8500 running
    OS 8.1 and also run Netpresenz on an 8600 running OS 9.1.

    Now I have a brand new G5 running 10.2.8 and it won't wake up for
    ssh/ftp access. This seems to defeat the purpose of having remote
    access to a computer if it can't wake up on demand. Am I missing
    something or do I have to tell the machine never to sleep?

    The checkbox for "Wake for network administrator access" in the Energy
    Saver preference panel is checked, but this doesn't seem to help. Is
    there something I'm missing?

    Thanks

    If you want network access while asleep, you'll need some way of
    sending a wake-on-LAN packet. If your remote machine isn't on the
    same LAN, you can't do it unless you have a box on that LAN which can
    send such a packet. Or you can tell the machine not to sleep.

    I don't recall that old Macs kept their fans running when they slept, though.
    Also, as I recall, the 233 iMacs didn't have fans.

    Deep (fanless) sleep came later. The fanless iMacs were also later than
    the 233 MHz, was the first one,
