Wake On Lan Question

Postby mbsmike » Tue Jan 18, 2011 3:00 am

I am trying to use WOL in a local environment. I was wondering what simple thing I'm missing because I can't get it to work. This is for a Windows 7 machine.

I can wake up the machine with a program called "WOL - Magic Packet Sender". These are the parameters used by that program.
Host Name: The computers internal IP
Subnet mask: 0.0.0.0 (Network Broadcast) {They also have 255.255.255.255 but that is for internet.}
Mac Address: computers mac
Protocol: UDP
Port: 9

The ones shown here work to wake up the computer.

I've tried every combination I can think of for the two choices in Remoter and nothing will work.

Any tips???

Thanks,
Mike

You should use:
Mac Address: The computer's NIC MAC address (the one you are using in the other program)
Broadcast IP: 255.255.255.255 for when using internally (within your LAN)

That should do it. Remoter will send the WOL magic packet using UDP port 9 as well. But that's not configurable.

In v1.9, there will be a separate button to allow you to send arbitrary WOL packets to the host. (As well as better instructions)
