Wake On Lan

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Needed the remote office guys to be able to switch on computers in the main office.  Found a good utility which allows sending the magic packets to networks on different subnet.

Download MC-WOL.exe from
MC-WOL 00:01:02:58:A3:C7

in case the machine is on a different subnet provide the subnet mask as below.

MC-WOL 00:01:02:5C:A1:B2 /a

you can find the mac address of the machine by using the following in command prompt window
ipconfig  /all
Also Wake On Lan setting must be set to on in the system Bios.
