Start your PC remote via Wake on LAN (WOL).

Your Motherboard / Ethernet-Card need to be compatible with the wake on lan protocol (most are) and you have to enable the features in your BIOS settings and your operating system.

This App MAY work over the Internet but theres no guarantee.

This App contains an App-Widget.

    Why ask to enter ipv4 address? It's not used in WOL ???

    Works great. Simple interface and easy to use. Couple of suggestions: 1. While entering Mac address user has to put : . would be nice if : is automatically added. 2. Feature request: add automatic ping to confirm that host is up.

    Doesn't work if you have OSes other than Windows at the same time and the OS boot screen is not set to Windows.
