Use this dialog to send a Wake on LAN (WOL) "wake up call" to a target remote system.

Wake on LAN Dialog Options

The Wake On LAN dialog consists of the following options:

Note: If you want to wake a system that already has an entry in the Save Host List, browse to the target system in the browser pane on the right of this dialog, and then select the system you want to wake to populate a majority of these fields.

  • IP Address: Enter or select the IP address of the remote system to wake. Alternatively, enter the hostname of the target system, and then click Resolve to resolve the hostname with DNS.

  • Last known IP Address: Enter the last known IP Address of the target system. If you want to use this IP address for the wake up call, select Use last known IP Address.

  • Subnet Mask: Enter the subnet mask for the target system.

  • Broadcast Address: Click Calculate to calculate the broadcast address from the IP address and the subnet mask of the target system. If you want to use this broadcast address for the wake up call, select Use this Broadcast Address.

  • MAC Address: Enter the MAC address of the target system.

  • Wake: Sends the WOL request.

  • SecureOn Password: Enter the BIOS SecureOn password for the target system. If the target system does not have a SecureOn password, leave this field blank.

  • Close: Closes the Wake on LAN dialog.

  • Alias: The alias for the target system. This field is blank if you manually complete this form, or if the target system you selected does not have an alias assigned.

  • Port: Enter the TCP port on which to attempt the wake up call.

  • Number of packets: Enter the number of packets to send for the wake up call.

  • Max Hops IPv6: Enter the maximum number of hops to use for the wake up call.

  • Scope IPv6: Select one of the following IPv6 scopes for the WOL attempt:

    • Link-Local

    • Site-Local

    • Organization-Local

    • Global

  • Nodes or Routers IPv6: Select whether you want Mini Remote Control to use all nodes or all routers for the WOL attempt.
