Wake-up your computer remotely

SolarWinds Wake-On-LAN "wakes-up" any computer compatible with WOL technology remotely. If Wake-On-LAN is enabled in the computer's BIOS settings, then the system will start up just as if the power button has been pressed. When a device is shut down, its network interface card is still receiving power and keeps listening on the network for a magic packet to arrive – enabling Wake-On-LAN to do its magic!

It works by identifying the MAC address of a laptop or PC via the network card. It's a great tool for anyone that needs to switch on and switch off a PC remotely for any reason. For network administrators, it provides a useful tool to ensure that whole banks of computers are turned off and for home users, it gives you peace of mind that after your PC is not left switched on idle at home.

In summary, this is a simple little tool which allows you more control over your PC from remote locations.

Need that one last document to finish a project from the beach, but being correctly environmentally conscious you shut down your work PC?

With SolarWinds Wake-On-LAN, powering up a remote PC is no longer an issue. When the remote network adapter hears a "Magic Packet" created for its unique MAC address, the network adapter alerts the computer to power up.
