Wake-on-LAN (WOL):- Boot System Remotely


Okay, so here’s what happened. You were on a rush, and went to different building in your office to present something to the board members of your company. suddenly you realized that you missed the presentation file in your personal computer, which is in shutdown state and no one is there to start the system for you. What do you do?
 
Wake-on-LAN (WOL)
 
Wake-on-LAN (WOL) is an Ethernet computer networking standard that allows a computer to be turned on or woken up by a network message.
The message is usually sent by a program executed on another computer on the same local area network. It is also possible to initiate the message from another network by using Subnet directed broadcasts or a WOL gateway service. Equivalent terms include wake on WAN, remote wake-up, power on by LAN, power up by LAN, resume by LAN, resume on LAN and wake up on LAN. In case the computer being woken is communicating via Wi-Fi, a supplementary standard called Wake on Wireless LAN (WoWLAN) must be employed.
 
Here we go. . .
 
Download any Wake-on-LAN software, currently for this demo I am using WakeOnLANEx2. Then open WakeOnLANEx2 and provide the IP Address and MAC and click on save. Then the second window will appear.

 
 
Now click on the small down arrow, it will show you all the options then execute the action which ever you want.
